The morning of Friday, 5th February 2016 began with guests mingling and networking in the courtyard of Lake Kawana Community Centre, while our Event Sponsors were escorted to the VIP Room for an exclusive meet and greet with Steven and Kerri, along with presentation of their Sponsor plaques and professional photos (learn more about Sponsorship here).
As the clock approached 7am, the doors opened and everyone took their places for the first inspiring event of the year to begin. Our MC was Todd Widdicome from MIX FM and he kept the tempo lively and the crowd laughing. First on stage was Kerri Pottharst, recounting some of her obstacles and goals to overcoming them. Steven Bradbury then took the stage with his motivational presentation and even included a challenge that was taken on from several students from Pacific Lutheran College, along with MC Todd and other brave audience members.
The event wrapped up with a little surprise from Kerri – who wheeled a 25kg suitcase full of broken glass onto the stage and had many eager volunteers once she had demonstrated walking on the broken glass herself! Steven and Kerri were then available in the foyer for autographs and photos, with some of their merchandise for sale.
