Gabriel Cordell of Castaic decided to take on one enormous challenge.
His goal was something that hadn’t been done before: travel 3,100 miles, coast to coast, using a standard wheelchair.
His other goal: to inspire people all over to believe in themselves and their potentials.
“Eight months before I left, I was a full-blown drug addict,” Cordell said. “I graduated from coke to crystal meth.”
His story is told in the new documentary, “Roll with Me.”
In 1992, a motorist ran a red light, hitting Cordell on his way to his first acting audition. Physically, he can no longer feel from the chest down, but emotionally, he feels a need to inspire.
