Dare to Dream
The Second Annual Dare to Dream Event, featuring SSG Travis Mills, took place on October 18, 2018 with the Eclipse Center full of students, veterans and community members. SSG Travis Mills is one of five surviving quadruple amputees who served in our military. The main event included Travis’ inspirational message “Never give up, Never quit”. Travis kept the attention of his audience through his use of humor and his down to earth approach to telling his story. He is truly an amazing individual who shares his story in order to make a difference in other people’s lives. The event also included entertainment provided by The PennyMae Dixon Band, Best of Beloit snacks and a student copy of the book “Tough as They Come”. One can only wonder how we will continue with such an inspirational message for the Third Annual Dare to Dream Event, stay tuned.
