"Even if you don’t walk, as long as you get to where you need to get and even better, things will happen for the best.”
"I'm very passionate about, not just fitness in itself, but... getting out of the house is very symbolic to everything in life. It's getting over that next step, where that physical action becomes a metaphorical action." - Brett Smith
Meet Joe Stone, a proud father and husband who believes that getting involved in your community by joining a support group or adaptive sports is life changing.
I am first a husband and a father, an adaptive athlete and a peer mentor. I also happen to be a survivor of a c6/7 spinal cord injury. I am a quadriplegic. I feel MTW is super important to me because it is a unique one of a kind resource for all things sci related. Being able to be apart and help out with such a project and mission gives me such a satisfied and rewarding feeling. Also, after watching the library of other positive peer mentors with their motivating testimonies one cannot leave without feeling truly inspired.
