Please join us in presenting our annual In the Pink luncheon on Thursday, March 1, 2012. We are pleased to present, Linda Armstrong Kelly, as our keynote speaker.
Mrs. Armstrong Kelly is the mother of cancer survivor, Lance Armstrong, and will share her extraordinary experiences. Linda Armstrong Kelly is a shining example of spectacular triumph against incredible odds. From high school
Linda's life is a lesson in self-determination and hope. In her book, NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH - Raising Lance, Raising Me (Broadway Books; 2005), she shares her life experiences as a young, single mom raising her unstoppable baby boy. Growing up in the Dallas projects and receiving a GED, Linda’s guiding principles enabled her to rise from an entry level temp job to her career goal as a global account manager with Ericsson Microelectronics. She spent 15 years demonstrating her strength, positive attitude, and survival skills.
A passionate activist and speaker, Linda captivates audiences on the causes closest to her heart; battling adversity and overcoming odds much greater than the mountains Lance lived to climb. At the core of her inspirational messages are the importance of dedication and hard work in accomplishing one's goals.
Linda is proud to be a member of the National Speakers Association. She also assists nonprofit organizations with fundraising, is an active volunteer, and serves as an Ambassador for The Lance Armstrong Foundation.
