Many of you have already heard about the LA Cyclist who lost his leg when he was dragged onto the freeway during a hit and run.
His name: Damian Kevitt. He turned his terrible adversity into one of the most inspiring movements in all of cycling. Finish The Ride took place today April 27th and represented overcoming adversity because Damian got back on his bicycle after 11 surgeries and took the same route on which he was injured. Except this time he rode with over 500 supporters and contributed big bucks to the Challenged Athletes Foundation through contributions of those sharing the ride with him.
Damian exemplifies this famous quote by L. Ron Hubbard “Never regret yesterday. Life is in you today and you make your tomorrow.” [Source]
I am proud to have him inspire others through his story. And it was great to see him show his faith by starting the event at the Church of Scientology Los Angeles. It couldn’t be more appropriate.
