Disabilities Should Not Hold Anyone Back!

My name is Philippe Arsenault. I am 18 years old and have had cerebral palsy since I was born. I don't look at cerebral palsy as a handicap but as a tool to push myself to the best of my abilities.

Not long ago, I received a phone call from Shriners Hospital for Children Canada asking if I would be interested in doing a Spartan Race to help raise money for the hospital. They've also asked me to talk to students in several schools about how I've overcome many obstacles while living with cerebral palsy.

I said "yes"! I would not be where I am today if it had not been for Canada's Shriners Hospital. I've had four surgeries so far and this hospital has been with me since the beginning. I not only had my surgeries at Canada Shriners Hospital, but I did hours and hours of physiotherapy there too, as they worked with me to help improve my walking. Without them, I would not be in a position to consider doing a Spartan Race.

I would like to thank Canada Shriners Hospital for everything they have done for me. I would also like to thank Gold's Gym for taking the time to help me train for this race. With these organizations' help, I intend to prove that cerebral palsy - or any disability - should not hold anyone back.

You can encourage me in my Spartan Race goal right here on this page by donating to Canada Shriners Hospital. Thank you!
