In this episode of A Leg Up On Life, Roni Sasaki interviews Don "Garce" Garcia. Garce grew up with Cerebral Palsy and used it as an asset to create a life of adventure and achievement. Along with participating in many extreme sports, Garce is a former member of the U.S. Disabled Ski Team. He won a Gold Medal in the Downhill at the 1986 World Disabled Ski Championships in Sälen, Sweden. Just before the 1992 Paralympics, Garce chose to retire from ski racing so that he could produce the televised version of the event to be shown in the United States. He went on to build a career in film and production and currently owns Garce Works Video Productions. He has filmed presidential debates, the Olympics, and many other extreme sporting events.
