About Kevin

Kevin Rempel has surmounted incredible life-challenges to reach the Paralympic podium and now to bring his powerful message of hope and resilience to audiences through his speaking and writing.

A freestyle motocross accident left Kevin an incomplete paraplegic and was told by doctors he would likely never walk again. A hunting accident, four years previous, had left Kevin’s father also paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair.

Determined to walk again, Kevin willed himself to move just one toe, and then another and another until - eventually - he not only walked again, but was able to become one of Canada’s best Paralympic athletes earning a Bronze medal at the 2014 Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia.

Join fellow alumni, students and guests as Kevin Rempel shares his personal story & lessons on resilience we can all take back into our personal lives. If you want an inside look into what it’s like to participate in the Paralympic Games and the unique opportunity to step into an official sledge hockey sled, you won’t want to miss this event!
