Dream Chopper Winner

PAUL DEMELLO

Put your hands together for Paul DeMello, who will receive this year’s Dream Chopper! A lifelong motorcycle enthusiast, Paul didn’t snag his first bike until the age of thirty-five. The jovial winner has overcome great hardship since the loss of his twin boys in a drowning accident. He now works to promote drowning prevention and water safety through his organization, Just Against Children Drowning.

"Ever since that day, i’ve wanted to help people—i was able to flip the script and help others in hopes that no one else has to go through what i went through.”

We’d like to extend a huge thank you to all of our competitors. You are all so enthusiastic and have made the Dream Chopper community a great place to share stories and support one another. You and your followers are why Dream Chopper, LLC is one of Hudson Valley SPCA’s biggest supporters, and we can’t wait to continue to help them in the future.
