CBS “Courage in Sports” Features the Arrow Quintum, Paralympians With Purpose
Arrow Electronics presented “Courage in Sports” on CBS over the weekend. The documentary-style U.S. television program features inspiring stories of athletes who have overcome adversity. This year, “Courage in Sports” showcased the Arrow Quintum—five paralympians with a common purpose to push their own limits and inspire the next generation.
The five women competed in a series of outdoor adventures near Clear Creek in Colorado, including mountain biking, climbing/rappelling, horseback riding and whitewater kayaking. They were paired with five young girls, who also have physical disabilities, to show them what’s possible. Together, the Arrow Quintum and their young mentees tackled every physical challenge, supporting each another every step of the way.
“I look at what I’m doing now, and I say to myself, ‘I want to be able to return that favor and make sure the generation after me has the same chance I did,’” said Quintum member and 2014 Paralympics bronze medalist Stephanie Jallen. “Five years from now, I can’t wait to see how these young girls are living their lives to the fullest.”
