2019 NRPS Annual Conference – Keynote Speaker – Roy Tuscany
April 8, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Are you Invincible?
The 2019 NRPS conference committee is happy to announce this year’s keynote speaker.Originally from Waterbury, Vermont, Roy Tuscany, founder and Chief Executive Officer of the High Fives Foundation, had dreams of being a professional free-skier. After graduating from the University of Vermont with a degree in Mechanical Engineering he headed out west to pursue that dream. In 2006, Roy suffered a life-altering injury that left him paralyzed from the waist down. This injury was the catalyst to the creation of something greater. Roy turned the financial and community support of his own recovery into a ‘Pay-It-Forward’ adventure with the creation of a non-profit organization called the High Fives Foundation. High Fives Foundation’s mission is “to support the dreams of outdoor action sports athletes by raising injury prevention awareness while providing resources and inspiration to those who suffer life-altering injuries.” He was the recipient of the “Spirit Inspires” Award from Disabled Sports USA in 2011 and once held the world record for the most high-fives in a 24-hour period. He lives in Reno, NV and enjoys finding fun in everything he does.
In his keynote address ARE YOU INVINCIBLE?, Roy Tuscany will focus conference attendees on their inner goals, evaluate the impact of life-changing events, and analyze the ability to find the positive out of the negative.
