Joshua first came to China in 1998 and has been living and working in Beijing for nearly 20 years, as a translator. After experiencing and benefiting from the many economic and social changes in China over the years, Joshua is committed to giving back. In 2013 Joshua had a chance meeting with adaptive athlete Domonic Corradin and they came up with the idea of sharing concepts and equipment from the US with the disabled community in China. As a result, Krankin’ thru China was born. Krankin’ thru China is a movement to bring the sport of handcycling to China and with it a more active, healthier lifestyle for people with disabilities. Starting with handcycling, Joshua and his China based team have continued to explore a range of adaptive sports including swimming, rock climbing, surfing and paragliding with more to come!
