The IronSpine Challenge: AUGUST 2013
Paul Stewart was sent plummeting off a 200ft cliff by an avalanche in December 2008. The life changing fall injured Paul's spinal cord and left him paralysed from the waist down; doctors told him he would never walk again.
Today, Paul is still paralysed below the knees but after years of gruelling rehabilitation he can walk with the aid of walking sticks, despite having no feeling or sensation as he takes each step.
This August, Paul will attempt his IronSpine Challenge and once again face the mountain that broke him. Each part of the journey will be the equivalent of an able-bodied person travelling four times the distance Paul will face… a challenge that seemed impossible just four years ago!!
