When Would You Want to Know
Posted by: Pierre Gallant
episode 21

In life, adversity often forces us to face an ultimatum: find some way to overcome and becoming a better, stronger, and more capable individual or accept defeat and become swallowed whole. On today’s episode, Jason Hunter and John Bergen join When Would You Want to Know, to share how they have coped and persevered through unimaginable obstacles.

Jason’s Story

In October of 2001, Jason was shot six times at point blank range. For the rest of his life he would be confined to a wheelchair but instead of becoming isolated and detached from the outside world, as so many would expect from such a tragic experience, Jason developed and evolved into one of the most extraordinary humans I’ve ever met.

John’s Story

As an elite athlete competing in iron mans, ultra marathons and now The Race Across America, John is no stranger to pain.  He has spent years challenging and pushing himself past his threshold only to sacrifice, adapted and overcome.

To hear Jason and John’s complete sorry and how they are both, in their own ways, the epitome of finding purpose in pain, listen to the full episode above or on iTunes here.
