ABOUT THE KEYNOTE SPEAKER

gala-2017-bradshaw

No one can spiral them into the end zone like Bradshaw… as he speaks openly and honestly about his personal journey with mental health.

Keynote Speaker Terry Bradshaw

The only NFL player with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Terry Bradshaw continues to defy an easy pigeonhole. He’s a four-time Super Bowl champion quarterback (Pittsburgh Steelers), two-time Super Bowl MVP and Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, multi-Emmy and award-winning broadcaster for FOX on Fox NFL Sunday, and enduringly popular actor. Add to that gospel/country singer, motivational speaker, New York Times best-selling author, and breeder of championship quarter horses.
