Steve Heidenreich, motivational speaker and former U.S. track champion, giving talk at CMC
Colorado Mountain College will be hosting motivational speaker and U.S. track champion Steve Heidenreich at the school’s Breckenridge campus on Wednesday, March 29, at 7 p.m. in the Eileen and Paul Finkel Auditorium.
Heidenreich went from being a shoe-in for the 1976 U.S. Olympic Team to having a 5 percent chance to live after a hit-and-run driver struck him while he was training in Bloomington, Indiana.
He was in a coma for weeks but eventually awakened, beginning his long road to recovery. Eventually, he was able to start training for the Olympics again, but the U.S. boycotted the 1980 games in Moscow.
After earning three Master’s degrees, Heidenreich became a successful coach and special education teacher. His mission is to inspire others who have encountered setbacks and other unexpected turns of fortune.
The event is free and open to the public.
