About Chris Norton
Each one of us faces adversity, uncertainty, and change. Chris is no exception. After suffering a spinal cord injury while playing college football, Chris was given a 3% chance of ever moving anything below his neck. Despite his tragic accident and facing long odds, Chris found the power to stand and ultimately walk across the stage at his college graduation and down the aisle at his wedding. Chris’ story went viral. Featured on many of the largest media outlets in the world, he has inspired over 400 million people worldwide. He continues to inspire others as a keynote speaker, author, foster and adoptive parent, and as the star of the life-changing documentary, 7 Yards: The Chris Norton Story.
