USING SPORT AS A TOOL FOR SOCIAL CHANGE

Benita Fitzgerald Mosley  

Access to sports can change lives. As an Olympic Gold Medalist, Benita Fitzgerald Mosley has experienced the benefits of sports firsthand. Years of hard work, practice, and training sessions taught her to push herself to get stronger and better, giving her the skills to survive. Benita will tell you that sports prepare you for life and there’s an athlete in all of us, but you don’t have to be an Olympic Champion to experience the benefits of sports. 

The use of sports for social change is growing fast, and it starts with supporting youth sports programs. But access to resources and funding puts these programs and the youth they support at risk, forcing them to turn families away. Time is running out and kids and families are waiting for us to act. By supporting these organizations and driving them to create a shared agenda for change, we make progress faster. 

Benita will discuss the challenges facing youth sports programs and the communities they serve, as well as the opportunities to support those programs to drive social change.

Opening Remarks

INSPIRATION. HOPE. OVERCOMING ADVERSITY.

KEYNOTE: John Register  

John Register is a two-time Paralympian, Paralympic Games Silver Medalist, Persian Gulf War veteran, and TEDx Motivational Speaker.  He embraced a “new normal” in becoming an amputee following a misstep over a hurdle while training for the 1996 Olympic Games, after participation in two consecutive Olympic trials. 

An Oak Park, Ill. native, Register discovered how to “amputate his fear of disability” and founded the ,now defunct, U.S. Olympic Committee Military Sport Program in the early 2000s.  He has launched a book titled: 10 Stories to Impact Any Leader: Journal Your Way to Leadership Success, as business leaders return to work with their staff amid stressful circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic and the recent unrest in our urban cities.  

Register teaches others through his “Hurdling Adversity” speeches and podcasts to “amputate their fear and embrace their new normal,” as they discover “stories within themselves.”  He finds that “it is the personal stories that inspire teams more profoundly with greater impact.” 

Register is a four-time All-American graduate of University of Arkansas.  He served six years in the U.S. Army—including in operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, and in active-duty with the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program—winning nine gold medals in the Armed Services Competition and two World Military Championships.  

Register had his left leg amputated after a misstep over a hurdle changed his life.  Register hyperextended his knee and severed the popliteal artery.  He started swimming to aid in his recovery, made the U.S. Paralympic Team in 1996, and later won a silver medal in the long jump—as he set an American record—and sprinted to fifth in the 100 meters and 200 meters at the U.S. Paralympic Games in Sydney.
