Nineteen people from across the globe, ranging in age from twenty to seventy-plus, tell their stories of living and thriving in diverse fields – from sport to the arts to medicine, business and more. With refreshing frankness, they share their successes along with their struggles.

Perseverance is the one characteristic they all share – pure grit is what each of them exemplifies. These are not stories of people overcoming disability – they’re stories of people accommodating disability while pursuing their dreams.

Pure Grit shines a light on remarkable people living with physical disability – on boundless possibility whatever our individual challenge.
