Jay Ross' Story

CRUSHING THE GAUNTLET 

Jay's Story in Men's Health magazine

Jay Ross was injured in a motorcycle accident nearly a year ago, when a car raced ahead of him as he was trying to make a turn forcing him off the road. The accident resulted in a spinal cord injury that paralyzed him from the waist down.  Jay came to Gaylord for his rehab and watched the 2018 Gaylord Gauntlet from a wheelchair. But this year, Jay was the featured adaptive athlete in the 2019 Gaylord Gauntlet 5K & Obstacle Run, which he accomplished with a team from the Gaylord Sports Association. Read his story in Men's Health magazine.
