CALS Solution Seminar Featuring Chris Koch

Mar 14 9:00 AM - Mar 14 10:30 AM

UF students and the greater Gainesville community are invited to a very exciting College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Solutions Seminar, featuring Canadian farmer Chris Koch.

Chris was born with no arms and legs, yet despite the challenges he faces, he chooses to take life in stride and make the best of every situation he is presented with. He spreads the message of “If I can” to the public (http://www.ifican.ca/). He has not let limitations and obstacles stand in the way of achieving his goals. Chris uses his message to inspire others to do the same. Watch his story here: http://bit.ly/2lua7w7.

Chris will speak Monday night, March 13 at the UF Reitz Union Ballroom. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m., with the program starting at 6 p.m. Refreshments and door prizes will take place around 7:15 p.m. Register for Monday's program at http://bit.ly/2jsA7M5.
