Josh Dueck

Josh had a clear vision. He would make a career out of his passion — freestyle skiing. It all changed in 2004. "I was doing a test jump and miscalculated my speed," he says. "I ended up going much too large and over-shot the landing hill. I landed chest first and folded in half like a scorpion." Months of rehabilitation were required so Josh could learn how to live his new life as a paraplegic.

See Josh's story.
