Turning Tragedy into Victory

July 12, 2023

Andrew Kooger

A young Bay Street banker, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner, and dedicated fitness enthusiast, seemed to have it all until a life-altering mountain biking accident in the summer of 2020 nearly claimed his life. What could have been a tragic tale of loss turned into an awe-inspiring journey of recovery and determination.


Against all odds, Andrew survived the accident that left him as a paraplegic, forcing him to embark on a profound journey rebuilding and redefining his life. Andrew's story serves as a testament to the indomitable human spirit.


Since the accident, Andrew has defied limitations and embraced his passion once again through adaptive mountain biking. He lives a fitness- centric life, both in the gym and through co-founding a Sports Nutrition company. Remarkably, he has also continued his career in finance on Bay Street.


Through his compelling journey, Andrew aims to inspire others to take control of their lives, embrace their challenges, and reclaim their own success.
