“My name is Grant Korgan and I am a Speaker, an Athlete, the Author of the book Two Feet Back, and it is my passion to teach people how to overcome adversity and choose positivity in their every day lives, because it’s human to fall down; the magic happens when we get back up!!!”  MadLuv – Grant

About High Fives Athlete Grant Korgan:

After sustaining a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the waist down, world-class adventurer, nano-scientist, and professional athlete, Grant Korgan – who had never shied away from a challenge – refused to balk at his new reality because he still had a mission in store. Ten years prior, when his best friend and climbing partner passed away in an avalanche, his parents entrusted Korgan with their son’s equipment, entreating him to continue climbing on life’s skinny branches. Spurred by his commitment to a friend, an overwhelming sense of self-belief, and armed with the unconditional love and support of his soul mate and wife Shawna, Korgan decided right from the start he would overcome. By doing the hard work and tirelessly visualizing his progression, he found the strength to rise and reclaim his active lifestyle by becoming the first spinal cord-injured athlete in history to ski 80 miles to Antarctica’s South Pole. Today, he is the emerging face of spinal cord recovery and heralds his message of choosing positivity through adversity so that we may all climb a mountain for someone we love.

Korgan chronicles his injury and road to recovery in Two Feet Back, the first in a series of autobiographies, aimed toward reminding us all, “that regardless of ability (or perceived dis-ability), every single one of us has the power to come to the awareness that you can achieve everything you desire in this life”.
“I believe that humanity’s natural state is one of positivity, greatness, and, ultimately, love,” begins Grant as he shares with others what he knows about the power of positivity, achieving goals regardless of circumstance, and the importance of remembering that life is happening right now, in this moment, with or without our permission.
