SPOTLIGHT WITH J.D. BOOTH

Dan Edwards remains committed to ‘Doing it for Sarnia’

Young man is living proof of how resilience, positivity wins out in the end

It’s been nearly a dozen years since Dan Edwards was roughhousing with friends and became a paraplegic after things went horribly wrong.

But rather than fall into a depression, the Sarnia native (he was born in London but moved here as a youngster) has served as an inspiration, focusing on the best that people can offer.

It’s one reason he celebrates on the day of his injury, which took place in August 2006.

In this episode of Spotlight, J.D. Booth of Lambton Shield spoke with Edwards about his passion for the community and how he is continuing to raise $150,000 for mental health programs at Bluewater Health.

Edwards has an inspiring story, one filled with determination and a sense of pure hope that he can make a difference in the lives with which he connects.

We hope you enjoy our conversation and share it with your friends and family.
