Featuring motivational speaker Scotty Smiley:

Blindness became Major Scotty Smiley’s ultimate test. After losing his sight while serving in Iraq, he lay helpless in the hospital, resenting the theft of his dreams. With the support of his family, friends, and God, the injury only strengthened his indomitable spirit. Since losing his vision, he has climbed Mount Rainier, won an ESPY as Best Outdoor Athlete, become a father, taught leadership at West Point, commanded an Army company, won the MacArthur Leadership Award, and completed an Iron Man.

Major Smiley will share his very personal and emotional experiences to help others to find their hope unseen. In addition, Suzannah Sabin, Health Coach from Hackensack Meridian Integrative Health and Medicine will discuss how developing a sense of purpose, and learning skills to respond to stress, can give meaning to one’s life and enable them to thrive.
