Vincent Bustamante & Earl Barnes

The 31st Annual Open Options Shawnee Mission Triathlon will be held in beautiful Shawnee Mission Park on July 12th at 7am. Contestants will compete in a Tri and Duathlon, both short and long courses. They’ll travel from all over to participate in the sanctioned race just to be a part of one of KC’s biggest race events of the year. Folks of all ages will compete in different divisions, including the Physically Challenged Division!

My guests are principle pieces to this amazing event. I’ll sit down with the CEO & Executive Director of Open Options (formerly UCP)Vincent Bustamonte, as well as challenged triathlete Earl Barnes.

Earl shares his story of how a motorcycle accident cost him his leg, and just how difficult it was for this EMT/Firefighter to come back wearing a prosthetic leg….only to find joy in running!!

Vincent shares his heart for helping families a “life without limits”, and what Open Options does to help so many!

1 inspiring organization, 1 inspiring story, 1 BIG race that benefits so many, on Breakin’ the Norm!!
