Submitted by admin on Mon, 03/04/2013 - 06:00
Three-time Olympian and gold medalist Casey FitzRandolph, a native of Verona, is set to speak at a Stoughton Fellowship of Christian Athletes event in Stoughton at 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 4. The event is free and open to kids of all ages.
FitzRandolph’s talk, titled, “If you believe, you can achieve” was his motto throughout his entire speed skating career.
A three-time Olympian and 2002 gold medalist in the men’s 500-meters, FitzRandolph will discuss his faith and how it has impacted his professional and personal life.
He will also discuss his sister Jessi’s battle with cancer, his career in skating, life after the Olympics, and the joys and challenges associated with raising a family.
The first 50 kids will receive an autographed Casey FitzRandolph mini-poster.
The event is sponsored by Stoughton Fellowship of Christian Athletes, teens seeking excellence in their sport while putting their faith into action.
FCA is an international, inter-denominational program impacting athletes since 1954. It has been hosted in Stoughton the past six years.
Stoughton FCA seeks to inspire youth by monthly hosting University of Wisconsin athletes, who share insight on their incredible athletic journeys while getting real about how their Christian faith impacts their performance.
