Tariq Mangum, of West Philadelphia, enjoyed sports and math as a child. In 2006, he was in a tragic car accident that changed is life forever. During his rehabilitation, Tariq had to learn how to breathe, talk and eat all over again. To date, he still hasn’t regained functionality in his legs, but because of his support system, Tariq has not allowed his accident or physical state limit his passion for business and community service. In 2012, Tariq Mangum founded Mangum Foundation to support veterans; persons with physical and mental disabilities; homeless persons; and youth; through activities, fundraisers, and year-round programming.
