Will has always felt like there was something missing in his life. Some intangible reason for being that has always escaped him. He has been searching for purpose, the answer to the question, “Why am I here?” but until now has been unable to find it. When he moves out to the Midwest to start his first job after college he has the feeling that all the answers he has been searching for his whole life will finally reveal themselves. Will promised himself before graduating that he would not let the “real world” tear him down as many promised him it would. Very quickly he discovers however, that his promise will be more difficult to keep than he ever imagined and his purpose may not be so easy to find. Everything changes the day Will is introduced to myTEAM Triumph, a group that helps individuals with disabilities participate in endurance events. Will goes on an adventure of self-discovery which challenges him more than any other endeavor in his life but also teaches him the most important lessons he has ever learned. Through the ups and downs, the trials and tribulations; Will is challenged to leave his old self in the dust and move forward to become the person he has always wanted to be. The only way for him to accomplish this is to keep the promise he has made to himself and to keep the promise he makes to a young, new friend.
