Special Guest, Scott Rigsby


On October 13, 2007, after enduring the elements for 16 hours and 43 minutes, NBC Sports featured Scott Rigsby as he became the first double amputee in the world to finish an Ironman distance triathlon with prosthetics at the 140.6-mile Ford Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

On March 12, Scott comes to Thomasville to share his Unthinkable story with Rose City Tri Club and friends. This is a community-wide event, presented by Rose City Tri Club and hosted by Victory Fellowship Church. That means you don’t have to be a Winged Warrior to attend.

Save the date.
Be there. And be inspired!

SCOTT RIGSBY (www.scottrigsby.com) is a professional speaker whose mission is to encourage people to do more than they thought possible in pursuit of their dreams. Since that incredible day in 2007, over 100,000 people have been inspired by his Unthinkable story through his speaking events, book and video sales, and on the Internet.

Scott grew up near Atlanta, Georgia, where he makes his home today. He has delivered keynote speeches for civic organizations, military, Fortune 1000 companies, churches and schools across the country. He founded The Scott Rigsby Foundation (www.scottrigsbyfoundation.org), a Georgia 501(c)3 nonprofit, to inspire, inform, and enable individuals with loss of limb or mobility to live a healthy, active lifestyle.
