  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$500 - $5000 per event
While training at an International level in Bloomington, Indiana, Steve Heidenreich was rundown by a drunk driver. He went from having a 90% chance of making the 1976 Olympic team to a 5% chance of living. Left with the mental age of a two year old, Steve battled back to earn 3 Masters' Degrees, become a successful coach and Special Education teacher. His is an amazing story of community, family, commitment and persistence. Turns out he was a gold medal winner after all--ask any of the kids he taught or coached!

Steve's mission is to inspire others who have encountered setbacks and unexpected turns of events. Each of us has a reservoir of strength waiting to be acknowledged and used when we need it most. Steve's experience in training for the 1976 and 1980 USA Olympic Team is inspiring and reassuring. Steve will share the Olympic traits that will help anyone be successful in any endeavor or challenge.
