Kevin Rempel

Kevin Rempel has surmounted incredible life-challenges to reach the Olympic 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 he 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 Paralympics in Sochi, Russia. Now Kevin shares his personal story inspiring others that even when you have every reason to quit, you must keep moving forward. Never quit. It’s up to you to rise above it all and become The Hero Of Your Own Movie.
