From there, he set out on a path of endurance and perseverance ultimately earning a B.A and M.S in Journalism from the University of Illinois. He was a three-time member of Team USA wheelchair rugby winning Gold in the 1996 Atlanta Paralympics, the 1998 World Championships in Toronto and the 2000 Sydney Paralympics. Since 2002, Bill has been an award-winning commercial real estate broker in the Tampa Bay Area. With Amy, his lovely wife of 10 years, and their three children, Bill lives in Wesley Chapel, FL where he and Amy have been actively-involved members of Idlewild Baptist Church for over a decade.

Bill was very engaging and captivating. His delivery will grip you from the opening seconds of his presentation.

Your story is powerful and you communicate the message so clearly. It is a positive, strong message.

Bill Renje spoke to the Rotary Club of Tampa Bay in February 2011

Bill delivers! He has fantastic credentials and a great collection of stories that support his central theme. He communicates clearly and directly... like a well-tuned journalist. There's no double-talk, and no question that's out of bounds for him. He engages the audience with his sincerity.
