Inspirational speech presented on overcoming personal adversity

Sunday, Feb. 15th, 6-7 p.m.  Alys Beach Central Park

Adventurer Warren Macdonald lost both of his legs – and nearly his life – after being pinned underneath a one-ton boulder for over 45 hours in the Australian wilderness.

Since that seemingly fateful day, Macdonald has gone on to achieve many remarkable feats, including authoring books, producing film documentaries, and in 2003, Macdonald became the first double above-knee amputee to reach the summit of Africa’s tallest peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro.

On Sunday, February 15th, Macdonald will offer a free speech in which he will discuss overcoming personal adversity, in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

Guests are encouraged to bring low-back lawn chairs or blankets, rain or shine.

Following the speech, Macdonald will sell and autograph copies of his best-selling book, A Test of Will.
