12 Individuals have landed on the moon, but only one person has jogged across America on crutches

ImageCome and hear Jerry Traylor speak Sunday, February 10th at 4:00 pm at the University of Great Falls in the Absolon Lounge located in the Student Center.

Jerry’s message is that people can do what they want to do, but they need to believe in themselves. 

“When people say that I’ve overcome obstacles, I tell them that it’s not true,” he said. “I tell them that I have learned to work within my limits, and use what God has given me. There’s nothing special about me.”

Jerry is a nationally known speaker that has struggled with cerebral palsy all his life.  In spite of his disabilities, Jerry has not let his handicap stop him from achieving his goals.   Jerry has climbed 14,110-foot Pikes Peak three times; ran 3,528-mile across the United States from San Francisco to New York City; and has completed 35 marathon, all on crutches.  

Jerry is a frequent participant  at the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) camp in Montana where he has shares his experiences with the RYLA students. RYLA attendees frequently cite Jerry’s presentation as one of their favorite and most memorable parts of camp. 

Attendance is free, complements of the Great Falls Rotary Club.
