Find Strength through Sport

May 11, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 5:00 pm

Recovery Through Sport:  U.S. Veteran, Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor and CEO of Boston Athletic Association Find Strength through Sport

SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Jose Sanchez, a Team Semper Fi athlete whose photo of him crossing the finish line at the 2017 Boston Marathon made headlines everywhere, will be joining Dave Fortier, 2013 Boston Marathon bombing survivor, and Tom Grilk, CEO of the Boston Athletic Association, for a workout on May 11 to illustrate the healing power of sport and fitness.

Sanchez, who used sport to mentally and physically recover after losing his leg to an IED blast in Afghanistan in 2011, met Fortier and Grilk through the Boston Marathon. This gathering is about much more than a workout — it’s about resilience, recovery through sport and building bonds to harness the collective power to help others.

This event promises great visuals and all three participants will be available for interview.
