RARECast: Living Life Beyond Limits with Bonner Paddock
July 20, 2015
Bonner Paddock led an active childhood despite his physical limitations. After years of being misdiagnosed, he learned at age 11 that he had cerebral palsy, a nonprogressive brain injury that affects muscle movement and coordination. Rather than accept his physical limitations, Paddock went on to become the first person with cerebral palsy to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, the tallest freestanding mountain in the world. He also went on to become an elite triathlete when he competed in the Kona Ironman. We spoke to Paddock about his story, his efforts to raise awareness and support for children with disabilities through his OM Foundation, and how he is working to empower children with disabilities and their families to live life beyond limits.
