We are very excited to announce that the Telly Awards has named Joe Stone as a Silver winner in the 34th Annual People’s Choice Telly Awards for their piece titled “Joe Stone’s 2012 Adaptive Adventures”. With nearly 11,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.
This video is a short film about Joe Stone produced by Joe and a team of his friends. In August of 2010, Joe was in a speed flying accident that left him an incomplete C7 quadriplegic. “Even though life is very different now, I have been determined to get my outdoor lifestyle back. This past summer I carried my GoPro HeroHD camera with me while I pushed myself in the outdoors again. This video has white water rafting, fly-fishing, off road hand cycling, road hand cycling, and some freewheel action. All of this footage came from both Minnesota and Montana”.
This video was first premiered in the 2012 G-Technology Driven Creativity Competition, and won first place in the GoPro Adventure category. To learn more about Joe Stone’s story, and his goals for the upcoming IRONMAN Florida Triathlon.
