Canadian Farmer Encourages Audience to Persevere at Next Noble Foundation EventMon, 26 Oct 2015 12:23:46 CDT
Chris Koch was born missing both arms and both legs, but that has not stopped him from achieving his goals.
On Thursday, Nov. 5, 2015, Koch, a farmer from southern Alberta, Canada, will share his story during the Noble Foundation's 2015 Profiles and Perspectives Community Enrichment Series. Sponsored by the Noble Foundation, this Profiles and Perspectives event, which is free of charge and open to the public, is part of the Noble Foundation's 70th anniversary celebration. The program begins at 7 p.m. at the Ardmore Convention Center.
During his presentation, Koch will talk about not letting the limitations and obstacles in his life stand in the way of achieving his goals and dreams. "I am constantly setting new goals for myself," Koch said. "I think it's important for everyone to always challenge themselves."
While in college, Koch began working with The War Amputations of Canada and their Child Amputee (CHAMP) program, which assists thousands of kids across Canada who were either born missing limbs or lost them due to accidents or other various reasons. Six years later, he moved back home to work in agriculture like he did growing up.
"As the Noble Foundation celebrates our 70th anniversary, we wanted to include a presentation by a producer who embodies the spirit of agriculture. Koch, who encourages people to live their lives to their greatest potential, is the perfect example," said Mary Kate Wilson, Noble Foundation director of philanthropy, engagement and project management, and chair of the Profiles and Perspectives committee. "He challenges people to not let limitations impact their ability to achieve great things, and he'll inspire our audience with his passion and humor. His presentation promises to be something special."
