2022 Speaker:

Will Waller

Will Waller sustained a gang-related gunshot wound on the hardened streets of Chicago when he was 18. The result was a spinal cord injury, a wheelchair and severe depression. Though the news that he would never walk again was devastating, his disability journey and eventually the sport of wheelchair basketball would reveal Will’s potential. 

This change would fuel a drive to pursue goals he once thought impossible. Since that fateful night of May 23, 1992, he has developed into a leader in the world of business, led Team USA to the podium as Captain at The Paralympic Games, and he’s become a sought after voice for his motivating messages that transcend setting.
