“He inspired a lot of people to pick themselves up and go on,” said Toya Bolton, Bonner Bolton’s Father.
Bonner Bolton was eliminated on week 8 of Dancing With the Stars, but is still a winner; and not referring to being a world champion professional bull rider.
“I’m really proud of Bonner for persevering and going on and trying something new in life, even when the career that he had of riding bulls was ended with the breaking of this neck,”said Toya Bolton.
After falling, Bolton didn’t let his injuries stop him from the ride of life. His father said being on Dancing With the Stars was his son achieving, yet another victory.
” It was exciting to be able to see him move like that, and it was just real exciting just to know that he was going to be able to walk and talk again after his accident; and much less dance on dancing with the stars,” said Toya Bolton.
Bonner is not going home with a trophy, but is leaving the dance floor as an inspiration to others.
“I love him very much and we are very proud of him. He is an inspiration to me,” said Toya Bolton.
