Overcoming Personal Challenges
Posted by Colin Heggie on Jan 02, 2017
Dave Weatherill thanked Chelaine McInroy for her inspiring talk about overcoming personal obstacles. An Armstrong “farm girl,” she competed at a high level in downhill skiing & rodeo sports, in addition to pursuing a country singing & song-writing career. She was also taking a welding course, so she had a vocation to help support her passions. Chelaine cut her foot on a Mexican beach a couple of years ago. Treatment for a lingering infection was unsuccessful, & 18 months later, she underwent an amputation. She’s now being supported by a crowd-funding effort to help supply her with an athletic-grade prosthetic leg. Her real interest, though, is to find a way to inspire & help others to overcome major life hurdles.
