Achieving Extraordinary Things

I have introduced you to my cousin, Joe, in the past.

Joe is a veteran of the Gulf War.  Joe's time in the Army was cut short due to an IED.  Thankfully, Joe only lost his legs.  Unlike his friend that was in the humvee with him.  He lost his life.

Since recovering from the initial injury, Joe has proven that he is a survivor.  He has also proven that he is a thriver.  He has taken up the sport of hand-cycling and now rides competitively.

He has made it into the top 3 finalists in the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year contest.  Please take a minute to watch his video and cast a vote.  And please spread the word!  Thanks!!
