Event Description
"Walking is Overrated," with Matt Glowacki. Born in 1973 in Janesville, Wisconsin, his birth drew attention because even though he was healthy, he was born without legs. From the very beginning, his parents made sure to provide him with every opportunity to participate in a normal life. At age three, Matt became involved in community activities at five he was mainstreamed into Harrison Elementary School and went on to graduate from Craig High School. In his senior year Matt earned the rank of Eagle Scout, served as the Governor of the State of Wisconsins Key Club District, and managed his own business. He continued his education and community involvement at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication degree with an emphasis in Public Relations and a minor in U.S. History. While attending the university and playing wheelchair basketball, Matt developed and administered a community awareness program entitled, "What It Takes: Cornerstones for Success." Matt brought this program and his messages and competitive wheelchair sports to over 25,000 students across the state. Matt currently focuses his life in two primary areas. The first is the world of business and community; he was employed for three years as an outside sales account executive for Lucent Technologies. During his tenure at Lucent, Matt was awarded the regional Master Sales Award and the Giving Back to the Community Award. Visit mattglowacki.com
