Polio survivor and athlete Minda Dentler’s inspiring story

Polio survivor and athlete Minda Dentler’s inspiring story

This video comes to us from EndPolio.org and Rotary International

Polio survivor and athlete Minda Dentler was born in India, the child of a domestic worker and a single mother. She contracted polio when she was 6 months old and was left paralyzed from the hips down.

Unable to care for her, Minda’s birth mother left her at an orphanage. Fortunately, Minda was adopted shortly after her third birthday and moved to Spokane, Washington.

Watch this incredible video to learn more about Minda and her inspiring journey to becoming an athlete – including competing marathons, triathlons, and even an Ironman.
