A Paralympian Passing the Torch to a New Generation
As a photographer, you take thousands and thousands of shots hoping to capture that one magical shot that speaks louder than words ever can.
I had the priveledge of being the photographer this weekend at the Dr Pepper Starcenter Farmers Branch for one of the most inspiring events I’ve done in a while.
The Dallas Stars Foundation hosted this event alongside the National MS Society and the Southwest Wheelchair Athletic Association where they had Dallas Stars players, Jamie Benn (2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games Gold Medalist) and Tyler Seguin, and the 2014 Sochi Paralympic Winter Games Gold Medalist, Tyler Lipsett, play sled hockey with young children who suffer from different disabilities.
Although I took hundreds of pictures at the event, there is one in particular that I am truly proud to share.
An inspiring athlete who worked against all odds his whole life to achieve greatness in his sport and proved beyond measure that nothing is impossible…
Here, I am proud to share a beautiful moment that one quick snap of my camera caught.
The passing of the torch to the new generation.
To see more photos from this incredible event, go to my website JoanCristobal.com under “Special Events.”
I truly hope that it inspires you to believe in yourself… To never believe that you have limits…
To always have the strength to tell those who say it can’t be done, that NO was never an option.
