#HighFivesAthlete and Ambassador, Josh Dueck is featured in the Kimberley, BC Bulletin after speaking to an 8th grade class on injury awareness!
Josh sustained a spinal cord injury in 2004 in a ski accident, leaving him completely paralyzed from the waist down. Josh quickly accepted the fact that life was going to be different, and he did his best to enjoy the process of adjusting to a new life. He found it to be a tough transition to acclimatize to, with all the physical, mental and emotional changes. It was with the hope that one day Josh would be able to return to the places he loves (the mountains and the ocean) that gave him the courage to move forward and live his dreams.
