Bonnie Blair, Tatyana McFadden to Serve As Speakers for American Cancer Society Walk & Roll


By admin - Posted on 16 April 2013

Good luck to Olympian Bonnie Blair (speedskating, 1984, 1988, 1992, 1994) and Paralympian Tatyana McFadden (athletics, 2008, 2012) as they serve as speakers for the American Cancer Society Walk & roll event held at Soldier Field in Chicago on April 27. Blair is the most decorated woman Winter Olympian. She the first American woman to win five gold medals and the first American to win gold medals in the same event in three straight Olympic Games. The well-rounded McFadden won three gold medals and a bronze at the Paralympic Games in London and took home three silver medals and a bronze medal at the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing. She competes in the full-range of events from the sprint distances to the marathon. This is the second straight year our chapter has been represented at the ACS Walk & Roll. Last year, four-time Olympian Jackie Joyner-Kersee served as starter with Nancy Swider-Peltz, Jr. (speedskating, 2010), Simpson and Ron Urick (canoe/kayak, 1988) participating.
