Blake Leeper has his eye on one ambi-tion: to become the first American Para-lympian to run in the able-bodied Olym-pic Games. With his sights set on Rio, Brazil in 2016, Leeper, known as "The American Bladerunner,” Blake has a history of making people take notice.
He has competed at several events, in-cluding Endeavor Games and the U.S. Paralympics Track & Field National Championships. In addition, he won both silver (400 meter) and bronze (200 meter) medals in the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. After garnering such notable wins, he received a flood of endorsements, including ones from Nike, Fathead and Wheaties, as well as appearing on Good Morning America and Arsenio.
Blake will speak on "Finding Abilities in Your Disabilities”. Whether the wall in front of you is physical or emotional, this speech will provide practical advice to push forward as well as motivation to challenge yourself to overcome any barrier you may face.
