On November 8, 2017, the Given Limb Foundation held a fundraiser in New York City in honor of Veterans Day. The event gave an overview of the Given Limb Foundation to the hundred people in attendance.The night was filled with good food and great company but, by far the highlight of the evening was an inspirational speech given by Paralympian and veteran Melissa Stockwell. Ms. Stockwell gave an incredibly moving speech on her own story- from losing her leg in Iraq, to becoming a 3x world champion and Paralympic bronze medalist in paratriathlon, to co-founding Dare2Tri paratriathlon club. Every person in that room was deeply inspired.
Thank you to Melissa Stockwell and to all the veterans that have served our country!
