Barry Shore, the Ambassador of JOY, is excited to bring YOU one of the most positive purposeful and powerful people on the planet: Garrison Redd. He’s the kid from Brooklyn NY (and the most crime riddled part at that!) who as a bright 17 year old was outside his parent’s apartment on a lovely summer evening and was shot in an accident that left him a paraplegic confined to a wheelchair. Prior to this he was a rising high school star in several sports. No what?! Here’s what DID happen. With the encouragement of his parents, several close friends, and his deep introspection Garrison emerged as a determined, purposeful, driven person. Consider these in the past few years alone: TEDX Speaker, Team USA Paralympic powerlifter, model, and advocate for the rights of the disabled. Barry Shore, a recovering quadriplegic and a long distance swimmer, brings out the BEST of Garrison and it’s all for YOU. Imagine YOU in any of these circumstances. What would YOU choose. Tune in to be INSPIRED.
