"I don't need easy..." Bethany Hamilton - Motivational Speaker
Bethany Hamilton, professional surfer, famous for returning to the sport as a national champion after losing her arm in a shark attack, is coming to Bryan October 19th. Famous for saying, “I don’t need easy, I just need possible….” Hamilton will share her message about developing a mindset to overcome any obstacle. Bethany will share her message during the day to students and educators, and in the evening, she’ll share her message with the community at the A&E auditorium. Both events are free to attendees thanks to a grant from the John C. Markey Charitable Fund of the Bryan Area Foundation, and through generous donations made by Altenloh, Brinck & Co, and CHWC (Community Hospitals and Wellness Centers.) Additionally, to coincide with the event, CAHF (Community Advocates for Healthy Families) will be hosting a family movie event on Sunday, October 3rd, showcasing “Soul Surfer” the autobiographical movie based on Bethany Hamilton’s shark attack and return to surfing.
