"Uniquely Uplifting" is how many describe Liz, who has crossed a multitude of finish lines in life. Her journey and passion for helping others is an inspiration to all lucky enough to cross paths with this remarkable woman.
Don't miss the opportunity to hear how the POWER principles of Perseverance, Optimism, Wisdom, Energy and Resilience guide Liz and her non-profit agency, Girls With Sole (GWS). GWS works to empower the minds, bodies and souls of girls who are at risk or have experienced abuse of any kind. Liz will share the affect a healthy mind, body and soul has in keeping us moving forward no matter what life throws at us. Learn how GWS teaches girls to believe in themselves and to Lace Up for a Lifetime of Achievement. And prepare to be moved as Liz describes how to gain joy and fulfillment and reminds us to believe in ourselves and our dreams.
P.S. - Our Women's Leadership Council adopts a new cause for every speaker series, and for this one we have selected Crossroad's, "Just Run," running program for girls 6 to 18 years of age. Crossroads provides quality life-changing behavioral health services for children, adolescents, young adults and families, including specialized treatment for chemically dependent adolescents. We hope you will join us and our guests in support of the girls running program by bringing a donation to the breakfast. While this is completely voluntary and is in no way a requirement, your support would be mean so very much to the girls in need. Items they are in need of for their running program include new running socks, new running shorts and shirts, waterbottles or gift cards to sporting goods stores that carry such items. Thank you for your kind consideration!
