Why Attend?


“This event can save lives...I’ve seen the reaction that teenagers have to it. I’ve seen kids think
about what they’re doing with their lives and...actually try to make a change.”--
JIM WAHLBERG

 
It was amazing. Some really good insights. Some really heart wrenching talks and it really just made me think about the difference that I can make and what I can do to help others.
