Generation Fitness® founder Josh Stanton’s son Pearse (PJ) was born four months ago with a rare condition called Gastroschisis. Gastroschisis is a birth defect of the abdominal (belly) wall. Babies with gastroschisis are born with their intestines outside of their body. Josh and his wife Dusti learned early on in their pregnancy that Pearse would be born with this condition. They utilized the power of prayer, positive attitudes, and their network of friends and family to stand strong for their beloved son. Pearse was born on August 18, 2012 at Children’s Hospital in Aurora, Colorado and his strength and perseverance baffled hundreds of people including the Doctor’s and Staff at Children’s Hospital. Baby Pearse didn’t have a single complication after Doctor’s surgically put all of his intestines inside his belly. He set a recovery record for babies born with gastroschisis by leaving the hospital to go home after only 2 1/2 weeks of his birth. Pearse’s story is a true testament to the power of prayer, faith, and the strength of the human spirit. Josh Stanton on behalf of Generation Fitness® has organized a “Boot Camp for a Cause” event that will take place on January 5th, 2013 to benefit children born with Gastroschisis. ALL proceeds will go towards Avery’s Angels (Non-Profit Gastroschisis Foundation). Participants are encouraged to donate at least $10 on the day of the event. Details below..
