Joshua came into the world fighting a non-congenital cancer; Neuroblastoma. The doctors gave the newborn a narrow chance of survival. Joshua won miraculously. The damage done to his spinal cord left his legs partially paralyzed. Where many saw obstacles ahead, this young boy saw opportunities. This blessing gave him the blocks needed to overcome hardships and build a life of success, love, and happiness.
Josh's early passion led him to athletics where his determination, focus, and spirit has guided him to renowned success. Notably in 2012, Josh won the prestigious Boston Marathon with an incredible performance, recording the World's Fastest time. He is a 28-time Canadian Champion and the Canadian Record holder in the 5000m, 10000m, and Marathon.
Josh has extensive experience speaking to people of all ages, from schools to governments, businesses to charities, small focus groups to crowds of thousands, all receiving his heart-moving messages.
There will always be obstacles, it’s matter of how we overcome them. His stories of heartbreak resonate, and the reminder of how those experiences allow us to grow and rise above, are most inspiring. Through his mindset and incredible accomplishments, Josh is a true living example that “anything is possible."
