"I'm visiting Cardiff to expand the charity I work for into the UK from the US. More Heart Than Scars helps people see past their disability or trauma by completing athletic challenges that give them confidence and pride in themselves. We're trying to change the term disabled athlete to adaptive athlete to prevent people being identified by their disability.
I'm working with Spartan Races in South Wales, we're helping an adaptive athlete called Snowy complete the race in Crickhowell; he is paralysed on one side of his body and it will be great to see him cross the finish line on June 20th!
I believe strongly in More Heart Than Scars as I am an amputee myself- I had my fingers torn off in a pulley when I was a boy and have faced some real challenges as a result- but the key is not to be typecast by our scars but by our personalities and achievements."
