Adam Gorlitsky suffered a paralyzing spinal cord injury in a car crash in 2005. But he doesn't plan to let that stop him from stepping across the finish line of the L.A. Marathon this weekend.
Aided by a robotic exoskeleton made by a company called ReWalk, Gorlitsky has been training 20 hours a week for three years in order to make his dream a reality, as well as step into the record books.
A documentary film is in the works to tell Gorlitsky's story, as well as those of others. More information is available online at exorising.com.
