Motivational Speaker: Lou Figueroa, who will be joining us from Los Angeles, California. He is a fantastic, inspirational Speaker and Train Accident Survivor Growing up in Southern California before moving to Colorado with his family in 1991, Lou Figueroa was an avid snowboarder and mountain biker who enjoyed the outdoors. At the age of 27 while out with a group of friends in the downtown district of Denver, Lou encountered a beverage that was laced with an unknown substance becoming lost and disoriented. He walked nearly a mile before he was found lying in the Union Station rail yard. In the early hours of the morning a train was approaching the rail yard and saw Lou's body at the last minute. The result would be the loss of both legs. After surviving a week long coma gripping to life, Lou awoke in the hospital. Since his amputations, Lou has traveled across the globe sharing messages of hope and inspiration to hundreds of audiences including trade associations, chambers of commerce and universities. In recent months Lou met with Ossur prosthetics and is currently working with the research and development team to test and give patient feedback on product trials.
Today, Lou lives in Los Angeles where he advocates for drink safety and has created a website titled Guard Your Drink.com. Lou's mission is to bring awareness to drug facilitated crimes on college campuses.
We hope to see you there!
