Champion snow boarder to keynote conference
We’re pleased to announce that our keynote for the 8th annual Black Hills Brain Injury Conference will be champion snow boarder, Kevin Pearce. Kevin won three medals at the 2008 Winter X Games XII in Aspen, Colorado. He was also the first athlete in X Games history to compete in three medal events in one day. He was injured in 2009 while training for the Olympics. His injury and amazing recovery has led to him being an outspoken advocate of helmet safety. The 2013 documentary, "The Crash Reel" has become a widely viewed documentary. He also was recently featured in National Geographic’s "Adventures of the Year" 2014. Additionally, Kevin has been an advocate for people with Down Syndrome because he has a brother who has Down Syndrome.
The Black Hills Brain Injury Conference will be held May 8-9 at the Ramkota Hotel in Rapid City. It is hosted by The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center. For more information see their website, www.brainrehab.org.
