Ryan Chalmers, a world-class athlete and 2012 paralympian, is pushing his wheelchair from Los Angeles to New York. He will push for over 3,000 miles through 16 states and 4 timezones before he reaches Central Park, NY on June 15th.

Chalmers is raising awareness and funds for Stay-Focused, a non-profit organization providing disabled teens and young adults with motivating scuba dive programs in the Cayman Islands.

“Able bodied or not, if you’re passionate and you set goals for yourself, you can accomplish anything,” he said in an interview with FOX 4.
