We invite you to join us for our next 43INC with a guest who embodies excellence in the face of adversity. Oscar “Oz” Sanchez, is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps. In 2001, Oz's life changed forever when he was involved in a hit-and-run motorcycle accident, which resulted in a spinal cord injury (SCI) and the inevitable paralysis and neurological complications associated with SCI.
After the accident, Oz’s biggest fear was being defined by his injury. As a result, he developed a new sense of direction and vigor for life. He pulled out of his post-injury depression and once again took a proactive approach to living by dedicating himself to education and handcycling. Oz is an elite hand cycle racer. He won gold medals in the men’s hand cycle at the 2008 and 2012 Paralympic Games and is a five-time World Hand Cycling Champion which has earned him the title of “world’s fastest hand cyclist”. Oz is a graduate of San Diego State University with a business degree and a minor in public communications and is currently pursuing a masters degree while training for the 2020 Paralympics.
Now, we have the opportunity to sit down with Oz and hear his inspirational story. We'll be at the Olympic Venue in Boise with food, drink, and a chance to connect with others involved with the M43 community. RSVP today!
Date: Thursday, February 7 Time: 5:00pm - 8:00pm Location: The Olympic (downtown Boise)
