    Event Description:


    Featuring Guest Speaker: Blake Leeper
    Olympic/Paralympic Games Medalist, World and American Record Holder 
    Patrick "Blake" Leeper is an eight-time Paralympic Track and Field international medalist, world record holder and three-time American record holder. Born without legs from a congenital birth defect, Leeper did not start racing until 2010. It was at his first ever race in Edmond, Oklahoma that he caught the attention of the Associate Director of High Performance for U.S. Paralympics Track and Field, who convinced his parents to let their son move into the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California, where he started his habit of winning. That's when Leeper left the University of Tennessee to embark on a journey that no one could envision for a kid from Tennessee born without legs. 

    Running Toward Your Dreams 
    In this speech, Patrick "Blake" Leeper defines what it means to set your mind accomplishing your wildest dreams. Using sport analogies and personal stories, he inspires audiences to run towards their dreams rather than walk. His encouraging and powerful message will help others believe in themselves, remain persistent and ultimately embrace their flaws to achieve their goals.
