    What would be possible for you if you let nothing get in your way?

    Join us for a motivating and inspiring program where we will hear from Bryony Grealish and Kathy O'Connell about their journeys and how they have let nothing get in their way from making a difference in their communities and their lives.

    We will learn first hand about how they got started, the obstacles they came across, and the lessons they learned on their paths towards their dreams.
