Hear the Inspiring Story of Chris Kaag, Founder of the IM ABLE Foundation

 

Connections 2014

Join leading MBA employers and MBA career service office representatives to debate issues, share best practices, and participate in moderated discussions on key topics in the industry. At Connections 2014, we will explore the elements of the perfect match, through moderated panels, breakout sessions, keynote presentations, open discussions, and networking activities. And this year you'll have a chance to hear the inspiring story of Chris Kaag.

Chris Kaag was an active twenty-one-year-old U.S. Marine when he was presented with the “defining moment” of his life. He was diagnosed with AMN (adrenomyeloneuropathy), a degenerative nerve condition that would eventually affect his ability to walk. After his diagnosis, he had a decision to make: give up and let his condition control his life or dig deep and push on. He chose the latter, and through his choice to view his disability as a personal stepping-stone and not as a crutch, he hopes to motivate others, both disabled and able-bodied, to redefine the way they view their own personal challenges. The goal of the IM ABLE Foundation is to help all individuals, disabled and able-bodied, realize the potential to go further and push harder than their preconceived limits.
