Bonner Paddock Of OM Foundation
When Bonner Paddock falls down, he gets back up in a big way. He has spent his life shaking off skinned knees, broken bones and doctors' warnings. And at 33, he became the first person diagnosed with cerebral palsy to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro unassisted. No small feat for an able-bodied man, but a monumental undertaking for Bonner. To raise awareness of those suffering from cerebral palsy, Bonner tackled the climb with the determination and vigor that has defined his life. Eight days and 19,340 feet later, he had conquered not only the mountain, but his own limitations.
Bonner is a passionate and engaging speaker. His presentations focus on finding the inner strength to move forward in spite of difficult circumstances, facing seemingly insurmountable odds, setting and achieving goals and ultimately, not accepting defeat. An inspiration for children and adults around the world, Bonner Paddock is living proof that one person can make a difference.
