Though we’ve been quiet for a while, we haven’t let a lot of grass grow. We have lots of exciting news to share!
Over the years, we have heard from thousands of you wanting to know more about Leroy and Dartanyon. So much so, that we were given the opportunity to write a book about our journey together. This week, Carry On – A Story of Resilience, Redemption and an Unlikely Family is being released by Harper Collins. Pick up your copy on Amazon or wherever books are sold. Visit the Media link to see what others are saying about it. We’d love to hear from you as well!
In addition, Walden Media is developing Carry On as a feature film. Read about the Carry On movie here.
And last but certainly not least, Dartanyon has qualified for the 2016 Paralympic Games! He will enter Rio ranked fifth in the world in his weight class in blind judo. He competes on Saturday, September 10th. NBC will be live streaming the Paralympic Games this year, so stay tuned for more details and help cheer him on to gold!
