“On that first day, as the temperatures rose, I quickly realized the next 139 days would test my resolve. I knew I'd face resistance along the way, but over the years, I've grown accustomed to opposition.” Wesley Trimble was born with a mild form of cerebral palsy that affected the motor control on the right half of his body, but he refused to let that diagnosis define his life as evidenced by his decision to hike more than 2,600 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail. In this video, Trimble takes us with him from Mexico to Canada, facing the challenges of the trail and appreciating every moment.
