How Chevi Peters became The Manimal

On International Day of Persons with Disabilities, and every day, Bank of America is committed to fostering a culture of inclusion and respect. That’s why for over 30 years we’ve supported Special Olympics and athletes like Chevi Peters. After facing two strokes, 38 operations, and a lifetime of doubters, Chevi defied the impossible. With the help of his dedicated coach, he transformed himself into a medal-winning power lifter affectionately known by fans as “The Manimal.” Find more stories like Chevi’s and our ongoing commitment to people with disabilities here.
