Join us to hear from Minda Dentler, the first female wheelchair athlete to complete the Ironman World Championship. As an infant living in India, Minda contracted polio, resulting in paralysis of her legs and was left in the care of an orphanage. After being adopted by an American family, she underwent a series of surgeries that enabled her to walk with leg braces and crutches. Undeterred by her disability, Dentler became an independent woman with the intention and drive to face and overcome the many obstacles she has encountered throughout her life. As an adult, she discovered athletics and threw herself into the sport of triathlon. In 2013, she became the first female wheelchair athlete to complete the Ironman World Championship. She's committed to inspiring people to move beyond their fear of failure and achieve their goals.
