Bonner Paddock grew up just wanting to be ordinary. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy at age eleven, he guarded the truth about his health, building a normal life and keeping his secret from everyone—most of all himself—for the next eighteen years. But the sudden death of a friend’s young son due to cerebral palsy forced Bonner to reevaluate who he was and spurred him to pursue one breathtaking experience after another. This pushed him to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro—the tallest free-standing mountain in the world—and to pursue the ultimate adventure: the Ironman triathlon in Kona, Hawaii, the hardest race on earth. Along the way he forged a renewed bond with his family and launched a foundation to help disabled children around the world.
One More Step is a gripping story of human perseverance that demonstrates how our lives are not defined by limits, but by the moments and lessons that push us past them.
