Na­tional Heart Foun­da­tion Am­bas­sador vis­it­ing Corowa

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

The Ro­tary Club of Corowa is invit­ing every­one to come and hear from in­spi­ra­tional speaker and Na­tional Heart Foun­da­tion Am­bas­sador Jeremy Scott who will speak on Septem­ber 28 at the Corowa RSL Club.

As a four-year-old child Jeremy had ma­jor open heart surgery, which taught him that life was pre­cious and some­thing to cher­ish.

He be­gan to see life as a roller­coaster ride, filled with chal­lenges and ex­pe­ri­ences.

Some of those chal­lenges were forced upon him while oth­ers were of his own de­sign.

Jeremy be­gan a chal­lenge that was of his own de­sign on Oc­to­ber 5, 2011 a 2 ½ year, 51,916 kilo­me­tre un­sup­ported bi­cy­cle ride from London to New Zealand.

The jour­ney took many years to plan and as he ped­alled his way around the planet, he ac­cu­mu­lated more than enough kilo­me­tres to cir­cum­nav­i­gate the earth.

At the con­clu­sion of this phe­nom­e­nal jour- ney, Jeremy wrote the highly suc­cess­ful book ‘The Long Road From a Bro­ken Heart’ and now ded­i­cates his life to in­spir­ing oth­ers.

As a pas­sion­ate sup­porter of nu­mer­ous char­i­ties, Jeremy was awarded the 2015 Aus­tralian Heart Foun­da­tion ‘Heart Hero’ Award for his work rais­ing funds, aware­ness and in­spir­ing oth­ers with heart dis­ease.

As Jeremy will be talk­ing on the night that the Ro­tary Club of Corowa nor­mally meets, those wish­ing to at­tend have two op­tions.
