Topic: Achieving Your Personal Best (PB) with Vasculitis
Speaker: Brandon Hudgins, Professional Athlete with Vasculitis
In this webinar, professional athlete, Brandon Hudgins will talk about what it means to achieve your personal best despite the challenges of vasculitis. Hudgins draws on his own story of fighting two relapses of GPA Wegener’s to become only one of a few hundred athletes to run a mile under four minutes. Moreover, he qualified to compete in the 2016 Olympic Trials in July in Eugene, Oregon.
Although he didn’t make the Olympics he still achieved his personal best of successfully completing more than a dozen national races throughout the 2016 season.
Hudgins believes that running is only half of his personal best. He cites his work at raising awareness for the Vasculitis Foundation as important as his professional running career. His passion is to inspire and educate patients with vasculitis to define their own personal best when it comes to living actively and positively.
In this webinar, Hudgins will share his personal story about dealing with the disappointment, depression, and ultimately the determination to move ahead and not let vasculitis hold him back.
Please join Brandon for a discussion on ways to incorporate a healthy lifestyle and positive outlook in the year ahead.
