On Door to Door Podcast: Join the conversation as Avery interviews Chris Waddell ’87
Tuesday, April 25, 8 pm.

Chris Waddell competed in seven Paralympics, winning thirteen medals. He won World Championships in Alpine Skiing and Wheelchair Track and climbed Mt Kilimanjaro in a handcycle to turn the perception of disability upside down. Collaborating on an award-winning documentary about the effort, he felt that if you don’t tell the story, it didn’t happen. The skiing accident that paralyzed him took his identity as a young, vibrant athlete, but he found his greatest strength and power in the uncertainty of recovery.
