Keynote Presentation:
Mind | Game: The Unique Journey of Chamique Holdsclaw

Chamique Holdsclaw.Often called the "Michael Jordan of women's basketball," Chamique is the winner of three NCAA championships, an Olympic gold medal, and the WNBA "1999 Rookie of the Year" award. Thirteen years later, however, Chamique smashed her friend's car windows with a baseball bat and took out a 9 mm handgun. "The only thing I could think about was putting it to my head," she said.

Since that fateful experience, Chamique has dedicated her life's work to mental health and wellness activism. As of late, Chamique has devoted a lot of her focus and time making appearances and speaking at various conferences, panels, and events within the mental health community to share her own personal struggles with depression and to explain how she has been able to seek help and manage her own mental health.

Closing Activity:

Shoot baskets.Join us for an exciting shooting challenge between Chamique and talented local basketball players. They will compete in a variation of the game of H.O.R.S.E., which we have renamed H.O.P.E.

Professional sportscaster Dan Brady will provide the play-by-play.
