“Be the change you want to see in the world…”

Ghandi’s words, our vision. Todd Huston envisions a world where there are no boundaries to the potential good a person can be or experience. His hope is that everyone can break free of the bonds of fear that hold them back from the power to do good for themselves, their loved ones and for the world. Our state-of-mind can create a life and culture that either keeps or breaks our self-imposed barriers. Throughout history those who changed the world did so by overcoming their challenges, fears and doubts, and so can YOU.

“Every challenge is an opportunity. Every opportunity is a challenge.”

Todd Huston is an amputee, author, world record holder and inventor whose life is committed to inspiring others to be their best. With his journey of pain, determination and adventure, including his expedition to the highest peaks in all 50 United States, others are able to overcome their challenges. His story helps everyone realize they too can reach new heights of well-being, success, and happiness.

“If I have startled your mind, exposed the fear you hold onto, and have left hope in your heart, then I have done what I have come to do.” - Todd Huston


Todd Huston knows how to overcome incredible challenges. When his legs got caught in the propeller of a boat at age 14, his life was radically changed. He battled to keep his legs with numerous surgeries, but bone disease eventually forced him to have one leg amputated.

He used his professional skills and personal experiences to help patients achieve more in their lives. He also trained health-care professionals and authored articles in working with individuals coping with disabilities.

Then Todd did the unimaginable, to prove that you can overcome challenges he completed a world record-setting Summit America expedition by climbing to the highest elevations of all 50 states in only 66 days 22 hours and 47 minutes, shattering the original record by 35 days!
