FIGHTING FOR THE RIGHT TO WALK
Stories of overcoming adversity and inspiring others come not much more compelling than Adam Gorlitsky:
When Adam Gorlitsky, then a 19-year-old college student, awoke from a horrific car accident after falling asleep at the wheel, he was told he would never walk again.
The seasoned athlete, who was once celebrated for running a mile in under five minutes, was completely devastated by the news. The thought of not walking again was crushing and a reality he had a difficult time accepting. As the years passed, Adam set his sights on being an advocate for people with disabilities, focused on adapting to his new reality and how he could more forward in a positive way.
