Tonight, we spend an evening with Scott Hamilton - best-selling author, four-time cancer survivor, television broadcaster and motivational speaker. As a champion and survivor, he is a constant reminder that anything is possible with faith, fortitude and determination.
Hamilton's speech titled "Finish First" will delve into what it's like to live a life focused on winning - not for self-glorification, but to impact the world for the better. Pursuing excellence in his career and life, Hamilton believes it's never too late to chase greatness. Attendees will be inspired by his mindset to reject average and finish first in all aspects of their lives.
This event is brought to you from Greater Reading Chamber Alliance (GRCA). We provide businesses with the resources they need to build, grow and thrive. Making connections, advocating for free enterprise and developing our community is our business.
ABOUT SCOTT HAMILTON
The most recognized male figure skating star in the world, Scott Hamilton has won 70 titles, awards and honors including an Emmy Award nomination, induction into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame and a privileged member of the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame.
In 1984, Scott captured the attention of the world with his Olympic Gold medal performances in Saravejo and since has shared his love and enthusiasm for the sport as an analyst/commentator, performer, producer and best-selling author (Fritzy Finds a Hat, 2020, Finish First: Winning Changes Everything, 2018, The Great Eight, 2009 and Landing It, 1999). Scott further inspires others as a speaker, humanitarian, and as a cancer and pituitary brain tumor survivor.
After losing his mother to cancer, then becoming survivor himself, Scott turned activist, launching the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation (Cancer Alliance for Research, Education and Survivorship). He founded several education and survivorship programs including Chemocare.com and the 4th Angel Mentoring Program. In addition to those programs, Scott wrote Fritzy Finds A Hat to help ease the conversation with children about cancer, with proceeds benefitting the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation. Events such as Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer and An Evening with Scott Hamilton & Friends galas fund research into treatments that beat the cancer while sparing the patient.
