How would you respond if you had to endure something that would change your life forever? Adapting to an identity shattering event can be too much to overcome for even the strongest of people, yet finding new meaning and learning from the past can plant the seed for a future of growth, change, and success. Kalon Ludvigson - 4 time World Cup Champion, 2 time World Record Holder, and 12 time US National Champion in tumbling - learned this lesson when a freak accident put a halt to his gymnastics career and forced him to overcome something that would ultimately alter his life indefinitely. After going from one of the top gymnasts in the world to being confined to a wheelchair, Kalon learned to adapt, overcome, find happiness, hope, meaning, and even love.
