A bi-lateral tri-athlete and three time iron man is heading across the country and made a stop in teh capital city yesterday.

Hector Picard, founder of “Don’t Stop Living Inc.” was in Topeka to talk to patients and staff at the Kansas Rehabilitation Hospital about overcoming obstacles after a disability.  Picard’s arms were amputated about 21 years ago after an electrical accident.

He is now traveling 3,200 miles across country to raise money to purchase prosthetics for Jameson Davis, a child born without arms and hands.
