A Presentation by Ben Fanelli - Empowering Youth
Submitted By Stephanie Mason on Friday, March 29, 2019
Attention Ayr Flames. You have an amazing opportunity to attend a presentation by Ben Fanelli at 7pm on April 24th at Knox United Church.

You will not want to miss this chance to hear the former Kitchener Rangers captain speak on his past experiences. Space is limited and registration is required via Eventbrite

While playing for the Rangers, Ben suffered a devastating hit during a game and woke up in the hospital with his brain bleeding in three places, being told he was lucky to be alive, and would never play sports again. He spent two years overcoming that adversity, doing everything he could to recover, and he returned to hockey. He also became a champion for those with struggles and started Heroic Minds, where he does podcasts with those that have battled adversity and urges people to be the hero of their own story.

“The turning point in every journey is the ability to accept where you are regardless of the situation. Only then can you put together the right plan to get to where you want to be.” - Ben Fanelli

Space is Limited! Sign Up at Eventbrite asap!
