Damien Thomlinson Just Keeps on Inspiring

Leave a comment


A little over a month ago, I had the extreme honor of interviewing Damien Thomlinson — probably one of the most inspiring individuals I’ve ever met. I could go on and on…but rather than take my word for it, see the interview here: http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-565415

It seems Damien never tires of inspiring others and raising awareness. So, it’s no surprise that this week he’s rallying (literally) to raise funds for another great organization.

Wounded Warriors Soldiering On…on the ski slopes?

While I was at the ski lodge there were dozens of disabled vets getting ready for their day on the slopes, with the adaptive “SOLDIER ON” sports program at Mount Washington (Vancouver Island). When I saw Damien smoothly “walk” in, I just assumed he was one of the instructors. All of a sudden he whips off both legs and starts to change into his ski gear, as he prepared to go outside and snowboard on a regular snowboard! I had to do this interview with him so that other disabled vets could see what potential remains.
