Aug 15 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Wrestling Adversity

Please join us for the inspiring story of Kolton Kersten and his journey of wrestling through adversity, the sweetness of success and carrying on.

Speaker: Kolton Kersten

Kolton KerstenKolton Kersten is a survivor of bacterial meningitis who had less than a 10% chance to live. He lived through what is known as a medical miracle for one last run at a National title for his senior wrestling season. For what might be one of the best comeback stories never known, Kersten rebuilt himself from nothing to become a 2x All-American placing 3rd in the Nation. For someone who survived a disease that ate his flesh, while losing 65 pounds of muscle in two weeks and the ability to walk, he has proven that impossible is nothing!
