Harry R. Horgan, Founder of Shake a Leg and President of Shake A Leg Miami. Following a severe spinal cord injury in 1980, Harry started Shake-A-Leg as a non-profit organization with the idea of helping himself and others maximize their independence. Over the years he has created and overseen an array of rehabilitation, recreation, and educational programs that have served to improve the lives of literally thousands of people. He participated in the design and development of a universally accessible sailboat called the Freedom Independence and the creation of the Shake a Leg Miami Community Watersports Center, a public private partnership with the City of Miami and a host of community based organizations. The Center has become a public gathering place and a �Gateway to the Bay and Beyond�.

Harry is a graduate of Providence College where he received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business and a well-earned Honorary Doctorate Degree in Health Services. He resides in Miami, Florida with his wife Susie and son Eli.
