Dan Kosick

After losing his right leg above the knee due to childhood cancer, Dan could have easily crossed sports off of his list. Instead, he went after them with a passion few could match. His hard work paid off when he was invited to compete for his country at the Nagano and Salt Lake City Winter Games as a member of the U.S. Adaptive Alpine Ski Team. He didn’t stop there. At the age of 40, Dan became the first above-the-knee amputee to complete 50 miles in less than 24 hours at the World’s Toughest Mudder. When not carving up mountains and obstacle courses, he enjoys putting his carpentry skills to the test on kitchen remodels and other DIY projects. Active in his community, Dan coaches his daughter’s lacrosse team and has served three terms as a board member of his local Make-A-Wish chapter. He also has a heart for ROMP (Range of Motion Project), which provides prosthetic and orthotic services for people around the world.
