Pringle “Rowing for Tyler’s Hope” to Raise Awareness of and Find Cure for Dystonia

10/22/2014

Adams and Reese Partner Jack Pringle, in the firm’s Columbia office, has begun a rowing voyage, “Rowing for Tyler’s Hope,” to row 357 miles from Columbia to Gainesville, Florida, to raise awareness and raise money to find a cure for Dystonia.

Dystonia is a disorder characterized by involuntary muscle contractions that cause slow repetitive movements or abnormal postures.

Pringle has thus far rowed 268 miles.

Pringle adopted the idea because Rick Staab is an old friend from Chapel Hill, and over the past few years, he has admired Staab’s efforts in creating Tyler’s Hope for a Dystonia Cure. Pringle, who is an active stationary rower, decided to help fundraise for the cause. The South Carolina Gamecocks play the Florida Gators on November 15th in Gainesvillle, and his goal is to make it to Gainesville on or before then.

At Adams and Reese, Pringle focuses on administrative and regulatory law, information technology, securities, public utilities, environmental law and land use litigation, and class action litigation. He is recognized by the South Carolina Supreme Court as a Certified Circuit Court Mediator.

In the community, he is an alumnus of Leadership Columbia and has served as a volunteer coach for the Columbia United YMCA Recreational Youth Soccer League.
