Jessica Long, one of America’s most decorated Paralympic champions, will serve as keynote speaker. Jessica was born in Siberia and placed for adoption at 13 months old. Sadly, her legs were amputated below the knee due to a rare bone disorder. She was adopted by American parents to eventually become one of the most decorated athletes in U.S. history. Jessica’s life served as the inspiration for the famous 2021 Super Bowl commercial highlighting her connections to her family.

John Liddle, who serves as a news anchor at NewsRadio KRLD 1080 AM, will perform this year’s National Anthem to open the event. Liddle has previously performed the National Anthem for the Texas Rangers, the Dallas Mavericks, the Dallas Stars and the Dallas Wings.

We hope to see you at an event attracting more than 800 attendees united in the belief better health makes a better community!
