Blue Chip Speaker Travis Roy to Present at Local Schools
Travis Roy, an aspiring athlete in the sport of hockey, had just moments living out his dream before it took an unfortunate turn. Eleven seconds after the puck dropped of his very first collegiate game, 20-year old Travis found himself lying face down on the ice, unable to move or feel a thing. A cracked fourth vertebra left him paralyzed from the neck down.
By sharing his story and lifelong dream of becoming a Division I college athlete, Travis conveys firsthand the determination and emotional high of overcoming a self-imposed challenge. Travis then shares the experience of having his dream ripped away and the reevaluation of his goals to face the challenge that ultimately chose him.
