The Adventure Summit Presentation Schedule

7:00-8:00 pm Featured Speaker: Amy Purdy, Living Beyond Limits, Apollo Room
After contracting a rare illness at 19, Amy Purdy underwent a double leg amputation and a life-altering experience. Challenging herself to move on with her life, she attained goals that even those who have both legs struggle to achieve. Amy is now a world class snow boarder, 2014 Paralympic Medalist, Dancing with the Stars finalist, author, actress, model and clothing designer and a testament that the only limits are the ones we place on ourselves.
