On July 5, 2002, Debbie’s son, Pete, suffered a spinal cord injury at the age of 20. Six weeks later, friends and co-workers from the San Diego electronics industry came together and hosted the first “Fore Pete’s Sake” golf tournament to help finance the cost of home modification, an adaptive van and expensive therapy equipment – none of which was covered by insurance. The QUAD Foundation was created to support the local paralyzed community and share some of Pete’s equipment – it was his idea to make this happen. Over the years the QUAD Foundation has provided many hours of ERGYS Bike FES therapy at no charge, and donated many thousands of dollars to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation for various scientific research projects.
Fifteen years later, the QUAD Foundation is still operating with a small group of dedicated volunteers, beloved friends of the family, and we are delighted to host the first annual 2017 Warrior Momz Walk to fund therapy and services for our SCI community all across this country.

Hi, my name is Ruth Price and I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself. I like to call myself a San Diego native as I have lived here since the age of three. I was born in a town close to Sacramento and my younger sister was born there in 1951 so my parents came back to San Diego to raise five children.
I’m married to a great guy of 52 years now as we were childhood sweethearts. No children but we’ve had dog’s over many years and at the moment we still have two that rule the house and our bed.
I’ve worked just about all my life starting out at the age of thirteen. I had a fulltime babysitting job of four children. My brother would pick me up after school (7 th grade) and then pick me up at midnight. I could do my homework and sleep after the children were down for their sleep as well. I worked a few different jobs throughout high school..
John and I got married right after I graduated from high school and John had graduated four years before me so after 52 years I guess you could say it worked. He had been working four years at the time we married. We rented our first Apartment in 1965 for $66.00 a month and buy almost two weeks of groceries for $20.00, life was good.
The first year I worked in a five and dime store and loved it. Loved the customers and I was great working with people. I went to Cosmetology school and did Hair for about a year. Loved the customers but knew I didn’t want to be in people’s hair for the rest of my life.
I worked in the Electronics Industry for 43 years and retired in 2013. I started working for a Manufacture of ceramic capacitors as an expeditor for the sales team. Soon after I was asked to go into sales and I was very excited about this new adventure. I was offered a job by someone who knew me well and asked me to join him working in Distribution as inside sales representative. Yes of course more money to make why not. I became a Insides Sales Manager for many years and went on to be a Branch Manager until retirement.
I had some great achievements over the many years doing sales. Winning awards as top sales person several times, trips, extra monies from promotions. But one of best feelings was people I came in contact with, from employers, employees, customers, and I loved every minute of this aspect in working.
One of the things that came with sales job was after hours entertaining with both customers and suppliers in this industry along with planning activityies, week long sales conferences, with travel involved, exciting times.
On a more personal level we love camping; we rode dirt motorcycles in the desert with friends and family. We do a lot of road trips to different places and now days our ideal of camping is a Hotel (a pet friendly) that will be our home base and go out and do our sightseeing and come back at the end of the day for a shower and a real bed. I do a lot of girlfriend trips that I truly enjoy and being retired makes this a delight!
I do volunteer for a great cause near and dear to my heart and thanks to being in my career I had the great pleasure of meeting Debbie Flynn and her Family. Pete Flynn, her son was in a horrible accident thus causing his life to change forever and the family as well. The QUAD Foundation was thus formed about 15 years ago, and we’ve really had some great times over these years. As long as I’m need and can do so I’ll be there!
