When he was twenty-one, his life changed from believing those limits to overcoming challenges and excelling to his full potential. Through a group that enables the handicapped to participate in outdoor activities, Kyle has done white water excursions in the Grand Canyon and made history on a trek to the Mt. Everest base camp. His documentary details his accomplishments.
Following is a summary of his children’s book, “Stare if You Dare,” which was published in 2013.
“The kids were running and playing on swings, the slide, and a merry-go-round and having lots of fun. As Tommy and his mom got closer and closer, the other kids all stopped playing and started staring at Tommy.”
Tommy is a normal little boy who wants to play with the kids at the park. But all the kids stop and stare because Tommy looks different. What should Tommy do? Find out in the heartwarming book, Stare If You Dare.
Kyle is from Effingham, IL where he lives with his wife Sheryl. They have three children. Kyle is a motivational speaker to many groups of all abilities and ages.
