8:50AM: Keynote: Amy Purdy - 2018 Paralympic Silver Medalist, 2014 Paralympic Bronze Medalist, and Three-Time World Cup Gold MedalistTop-Ranked Adaptive Snowboarder in the U.S.

At 19, after experiencing flu-like symptoms, Amy was rushed to the hospital in a state of septic shock. En route, she experienced respiratory and multiple organ failure which caused her to lose circulation to her extremities. When she entered into the hospital she was given less than a 2% chance of survival, put on life support and placed into a coma.

After going through this life-altering experience, Amy challenged herself to move on with her life and attain goals that even those who have both legs struggle to achieve. Just three months after her kidney transplant, Amy entered the USASA National Snowboarding Championship where she won medals in three events.  Today, she is the most decorated Paralympic snowboarder in US history and a three-time Paralympic Medalist. She is the only double leg amputee competing at the world class level.
