Meet our guest speaker Holly Crichton:
Holly Crichton's career as a professional jockey and horse trainer came to an abrupt halt on the race track in Grande Prairie Alberta on July 7, 1996, when the horse she was riding crashed to the ground on top of her.
Paralyzed from the chest down, it was left to Holly, whose entire self worth was based on her athletic ability, to somehow hold her world together.
As further tragedy unfolded in her life, the love she held for her two sons, her family, and her friends, gave her courage and determination in times of great distress. Holly never ceased to be grateful for the constant panorama of integrity and compassion she witnessed all around her. She drew, and draws, strength from that example as she continues to experience life from her wheelchair.
Here is a link to her book: No Way To Run
