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.
