Time: 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM CDT
Have you ever had a misstep in life that made you want to call for a, “DO OVER?” Do you wish you could be more resilient during challenging times? Do you desire to make a greater impact in the world?
Well, if you have, you are going to be glad you are here!
And, if NOT?......(Pause)…..Well, You are probably in self-denial.
John Register failed to clear a hurdle as he trained for the Olympic Games—a move that led to a tragic accident and altered his life forever. He shifted his mindset and embraced a “new normal.” The decorated Persian Gulf War U.S. Army veteran world champion became a two-time Paralympic Games Silver Medalist, professional speaker, and global influencer.
Register “amputated his fears” and founded the U.S. Olympic Committee Paralympic Military Sports Program. He authored 10 Stories to Impact Any Leader: Journal Your Way to Leadership Success in Spring 2020 and works with business leaders to hurdle adversity, amputate fear, and embrace a new normal mindset to win life's medals.
The artificial leg he used to win the silver medal is displayed in the Olympic and Paralympic Museum in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Hear from him and join us for this annual event where we celebrate West Des Moines' First Responders as a community.
10% of proceeds from registration will be given to the newly established West Des Moines Public Safety Cadets. You can learn more about the national organization here.
