Kirstie Ennis, Guest Speaker
The former Marine Sergeant aims to climb high, higher, highest by tackling the Seven Summits on one leg by 2021
Kirstie Ennis’s story may have begun when she lost her leg after her helicopter went down in Afghanistan, but it certainly doesn’t end there. After more than 40 surgeries and the amputation of her leg first below and then above the knee after a life-threatening infection, the former Marine sergeant has accomplished more at 28 years old than most people have achieved in their lifetimes.
All proceeds will fund the mission programs of the Marine Raider Foundation, a Guide Star Platinum Level 501c3 nonprofit that supports World War II Marine Raiders, active-duty and former Marine Raiders, and Raider families, including the families of our MARSOC fallen heroes who gave their lives in service to our Nation.
