Once again, we’re proud to have our emcee, Anne Marie Tiernon from WTHR, join us and are excited to welcome guest speaker Sam Schmidt, former IndyCar driver, race team owner, philanthropist and disability advocate. Sam will share his incredible story of hope and resilience.

About Sam Schmidt
In January of 2000, Sam suffered a horrendous crash while racing which rendered him a quadriplegic. After his accident, he was no longer able to drive but remained passionate about motorsports. Sam later founded Sam Schmidt Motorsports and the Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation, which was rebranded Conquer Paralysis Now in 2015. Through the years the Foundation has funded research on a global level, provided grants to organizations benefitting the disabled, and continues its nationally acclaimed Day at the Races program providing opportunities for individuals with disabilities. A major focus of the program is encouraging people to find their passion and continue to live their dreams – just as Sam has done.
