On Today's show: Creighton Wong – was born with a congenital defect that caused him to have missing fingers on both hands and required his right leg to be amputated above the knee. He spent the first 25 years of his life participating in team sports, but never rode a bicycle or ran long distances because his disability made it very difficult for him to do so without expensive adaptive equipment. It wasn’t until his thirties, after being inspired by CAF athlete Sarah Reinertsen’s story of becoming the first female amputee to finish the Ironman that Creighton decided to train for a triathlon himself. With assistance from CAF, Creighton completed the San Francisco Triathlon in 2008 and has gone on to compete in numerous triathlons. An avid CAF supporter, Creighton has been involved through fundraising, mentoring, racing, and helping coordinate CAF events. This will be Creighton’s second time participating in the Avia Wildflower Triathlons. Creighton says: “It has been very rewarding being able to help newly injured adults or injured veterans “become whole” again through the power of purpose through sport. Also, dear to my heart, I want young children with disabilities to have the opportunity to participate in sport – and there is no better way to do this than by “showing” them it can be done. In short, I want them to have opportunities that were unavailable when I was growing up.” I interview some of the world's most interesting people about life and what they have learned!
