Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray
Two best friends, Justin Skeesuck & Patrick Gray, walked “The Way of St. James”, more commonly known as the Camino de Santiago, a 500 mile epic pilgrimage across the vast terrain of northern Spain. What is unique about this journey is the fact that Patrick and others pushed Justin in a wheelchair the entire way! In the spring of 2012, Justin asked Patrick what he thought about tackling the Camino. Patrick’s response was simple and direct. He said, “I’ll push you.” Two years later, they started their journey and had no idea how they would make the 500 miles from France to the Cathedral in Santiago; over several mountain ranges like the Pyrenees, through rivers, and across the vast “desert of Spain” called the Meseta… they just knew they had to get there. Through it all, Justin and Patrick had to rely on the help and strength of friends, acquaintances, and even complete strangers in order to navigate the many challenges they faced on their 34-day journey. Since returning from Spain, they have used their heartfelt storytelling to share the comical details of their journey… the joys, the struggles, the beautiful relationships, and the lessons they learned in faith, hope, love and friendship. Their goal is for others to walk away recognizing each life is not defined by its limitations, but is defined by what is accomplished in spite of those limitations. Patrick and Justin founded Push Inc. where they help organizations and individuals realize they can achieve more, together.
