Promoting Positivity in Schools

Tags : 

Long before Nike made their slogan popular, Dave lived it. No excuses- fight your way past the negativity and the naysayers and Just Do It!   On Tuesday, February 13th at Lake Wales High School in Florida, Dave joined Randy Nantz on stage and inspired students to do the same in their lives.  It’s was a powerful message of hope and personal stories that teens can relate to.

Tragically, the very next day America was once again horrified and shocked to learn of the shootings in Parkland, Florida.  And we wonder-  What can be done?   How did we get here?  It’s a complex issue, but promoting inclusion and understanding others that are different from us is certainly a step in the right direction.

 

 

Dave’s passionate about sharing his story with youth.  If you know of a school, team or youth organization that could use some inspiration,  we would love to put your event on the calendar.  Simply fill out a contact form or shoot us an email at Info@DaveStevensSpeaks.com, and we’ll make it happen!

When is Golf More Than a Game?

Tags : 

When a group of amputee athletes get together to raise funds for a young man fighting cancer,  golf is more than just a game!   On Sunday and Monday, Dave joined other sports legends and celebrities, including former Florida Gators and two-time MLB All-Star Carl Everett, at the  Celebrity Amputee Golf Classic in Orlando to raise funds for Parker Kress.   An amputee himself, Kress has been courageously battling Ewing’s Sarcoma since 2014.  Despite their struggles, Parker and his family are working to raise awareness and money for childhood cancer research.  If you would like to donate please visit Parker’s website at www.PowerForParker.com.  And, you can stay up to date on Parker’s progress by going to his Facebook page, Power for Parker. www.facebook.com/PowerForParker
