Urbandale Chamber of Commerce
Membership Luncheon
Holiday Inn and Suites, 4800 Merle Hay Road, Urbandale
Feb. 21, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The February luncheon features speaker Chris Norton. Chris has experienced the essence of adversity. He was
knocked down. Hard. In October 2010, a debilitating spinal cord injury left him with a 3 percent chance to
regain feeling below his neck. Chris’ football career was over, and the injury threatened to take much more
than his ability to move. It could have defined him. But Chris isn’t shaped by circumstance. Chris stood up. With his unshakeable conviction, Chris walked again, and works tirelessly every day to regain his movement. But Chris’ greatest feat of perseverance isn’t the physical act of standing; it’s his attitude, his determination to shape himself in the face of adversity. That strength defines him. Cost to attend is $25 for members and $35 for nonmembers. Learn more and RSVP through www.uniquelyurbandale.com or by calling 515-331-6855.
