Allison Massari receives charitable contribution for the Roger Pepper Adventure Camps
Many of our speakers have experienced life events that shape their outlooks and perspectives on the world. Allison Massari is no different. In 1998, she survived a 60 mph car crash where she was trapped and burned alive; conscious the entire time. Roger Pepper, a selfless onlooker, pulled her from a fiery wreckage and saved her life, risking his own life in the process.
The next year, Allison established the Roger Pepper Adventure Camps, hosted by the Adaptive Sports Center in Crested Butte, Colorado, to promote and provide outdoor activities for teenagers with severe burns.
Because of this and one other incident, Allison has dedicated her speaking career to wellness, well-being, change, adversity and success – inspiring participants with tools to more effectively manage their lives. Her mission is to bring transformation to individuals, businesses and communities. She also enjoys delivering keynotes to healthcare audiences for CE credits – to heal burnout in medical workers and to enhance patient-centered care. Her message focuses on the power of the human connection.
On Monday, October 5, Allison did just this. She spoke at the Healthcare Facilities Symposium and Expo in Chicago, Illinois. After we book speakers for events like these, we often receive wonderful feedback from our clients about the speakers. This time, we received an email from Allison where she raved about our client, JD Events.
“Jenabeth from JD Events did something amazing that you will want to know about,” Allison wrote. “This has never happened before and I am just beyond grateful.”
At the annual event, a raffle is held and the proceeds are then donated to different charities. This year, a decision was made to donate all of the proceeds to the Roger Pepper Adventure Camps—Allison’s camp for teenage burn victims.
In the email, Allison also wrote, “I just got a text that this incredible group of people in the audience bought raffle tickets that have tallied approximately $18,000-!!! It will go to the non-profit that runs my camp. I am speechless.”
We’re so glad we could be part of this. If you want to help make a difference, too, donate to Allison’s camp here. If Allison sounds like she would be the perfect speaker for your next event, call Executive Speakers Bureau at 901-754-9404 or click here to learn more.
