GKCC Annual Gala 2019
The Greater Keene Chamber of Commerce Annual Gala presents
Community Service and
Windsor Brooks Business of the Year Awards
Keynote Speaker: Travis Roy
Motivational Speaker, Author, Activist
From an early age, Travis Roy found his passion in the sport of ice hockey and dreamed of one day playing Division I college hockey, and even having his shot at the NHL and the Olympics. On October 20, 1995, with his family and friends in the stands, he took to the ice for his first shift as a member of the defending national champion Boston University Terriers. Eleven seconds after the puck dropped, Roy found himself lying face down on the ice, unable to move or feel a thing. Within seconds he not only knew he was paralyzed, but that life as he knew it was over.
"There are times in our life when we choose our challenges, and other times when the challenges simply choose us, it is what we do in the face of those challenges that defines who we are, and more importantly, who we can and will become."
Sponsorship opportunities are available.
