Co-Producer/Story Creator

JOE STONE – On August 13, 2010 Joe crashed while speed flying—a form of high performance paragliding—in Missoula, MT, causing numerous life-threatening injuries including a broken neck which rendered him an incomplete C7 quadriplegic.

Against the odds, Joe set his sights on becoming the first known  wheelchair-using quadriplegics to complete a full IRONMAN Triathlon as a way to inspire others to push their boundaries and live life fully with whatever physical and mental abilities one possesses.

Joe continuously inspires many people, disabled and able-bodied, through his public speaking, engaging award-winning videos, volunteering, and one-on-one peer mentoring of others who have experienced similar injuries.

Joe Stone seeks to raise the bar of what is possible, and push through the boundaries of perceived limitations to open the doors of possibilities for all others. Joe, Amy and Kevin have started The Joe Stone Foundation with the mission of promoting adapted outdoor recreation for all people with disabilities as a way to promote a healthy lifestyle and enjoy a higher quality of life.

An Ironman’s Journey is the journey that Joe and I have been on since his accident on August 13, 2010. I have always loved helping Joe achieve his goals in life, which in turn, through these experiences, helps me reach mine, and this is the biggest yet for both of us. I can’t wait to see what happens in Florida! Thanks for joining the journey with us!”
