Carbondale, CO

In June 2016, Nate White was kayaking on Daisy Creek outside of Crested Butte, Colo., over three hours away from his home in Carbondale, Colo. The water level at the creek was exceptionally low, and upon dropping off a small rock on the run, White landed on a submerged rock, causing him to lose motion and feeling in his lower extremities.

White was extracted and flown directly to Swedish Medical Center in Denver, Colo. where he was told that he has suffered a spinal cord injury at his L2 vertebrae.

“There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance next time.”
