Benjamin Cummings-Jackson is a 23-year-old who has been diagnosed with Spastic Cerebral Palsy. A former wrestler at Pocono Mountain West High School, Ben was honored to have an award named for him called the “Ben Jackson Courage Award” in 2011.
In 2014, Ben was the face of Gatorade’s #WinFromWithin series. The campaign has been seen around the world with more than one million views on YouTube. It captures a day in the life of Ben’s training, where he perseveres despite the physical impediments that may prevent him from succeeding.
#WinFromWithin has gone on to earn three CLIO Sports Awards, which include two gold and one sliver trophies.
Ben is currently a Motivational Speaker and has spoken at the 2015 Beyond Sport International Summit hosted by sports’ top leaders, from Adam Silver and Gary Bettman to Rob Manfred and Scott O’Neil. Ben has also spoken to the Baltimore Ravens, NY Giants, Rutgers University and the Brooklyn Nets, to name a few.
Ben is a firm believer that from adversity one gains strength and that every challenge is an opportunity to showcase resilience.
