Sunday Keynote: Champions Rebuilt: The Courage to be Different with Dorian Willes
Dorian Willes is a person with a disability, a survivor of gun violence, a body builder, a Paralympic athlete that competes in the sport of skeleton, and a parent of a child with a disability. From a life of gangs and drugs, Dorian has undergone a radical transformation to become a world class athlete and model of resiliency and determination.
Join us as he shares his story in 21 bullet points: one for each of the bullets that struck him and changed his life forever. Each bullet represents a decision that impacted his life, and set him on the course from a life of drugs and gang violence to an existence based on health, wellness, and inspiring others.
As he takes us on his journey, Dorian will talk about how the decisions he ultimately made changed his life forever, as he faced the challenges of being both a person with a disability, and a parent of a child with his own disabilities. Learn how he embraced his disability and his circumstances to fulfill his dreams, and become a champion rebuilt.
