Cadira Heroes Conquer Alcatraz

September 14, 2017

On Saturday, August 12, three Cadira Heroes participated in the 37th annual Escape From The Rock Duathlon, swimming across San Francisco bay from infamous Alcatraz prison to the mainland before running a 7-mile course along the shoreline. Jonathan Lopez, Earl Granville and Matthew Bradford were all up to the challenge, completing what no prisoner in the history of the prison was able to do. Their accomplishment was even more remarkable considering that each is a survivor of traumatic injuries - Lopez had lost his arm in an automobile accident, Granville lost his left leg to a roadside bomb in Afghanistan, and Bradford lost both his legs and his eyesight to a roadside bomb in Iraq.
