|Olympic Silver Medalist Noelle Pikus Pace|
"Registration is open for the 2015 Raising Hope with Heartstrings, an annual benefit featuring an inspiring speaker whose message is about hope and overcoming life-changing obstacles. On Thursday, January 29, 2015, 5:30-7:30pm at the Greensboro Country Club, Heartstrings presents Olympic Silver Medalist Noelle Pikus Pace Chasing the Torch: The Struggles & Triumphs of an Olympian & Mother.
At the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games, Noelle crossed the finish line, triumphing after a 12 year journey chasing the Olympic podium. Her journey was very difficult, overcoming a severe leg injury from a run-away sled, but her greatest life challenge was the loss of her third child. At her husband's suggestion, Noelle resumed skeleton racing as a way to begin to heal, and her heartfelt Olympic victory gave us all renewed hope.
Event proceeds support Heartstrings, a 501(C)3 nonprofit that provides validation, bereavement education, and hope to Triad parents who have suffered the loss of a child from conception to 23 years of age.
General admission is $50 per person. Hors d’oeuvres & cash bar beginning at 5:30pm will be followed by the 6:00pm program. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.heartstringssupport.org or call 336-335-9931."
