February 22, 1980…I remember it like it was yesterday! The day WE beat the Russians in Lake Placid on our way to the GOLD Medal! I have been overwhelmed by so many wonderful stories over the years with people telling me where they were as they watched the game, but more importantly, how they were inspired by our win. I’ve decided to capture these stories in a book about Inspiration and the 1980 Olympic Hockey Team.
In the book, you’ll get to learn about each member of our team- with a chapter devoted to each player, read some never before told antidotes and hear some of the stories I’ve been told throughout the years. So what’s your story? Did our win inspire you? Have you ever used our story to motivate others? What goals did you set after watching our win or the movie “Miracle” for the 1st time? Please email your story to: firstname.lastname@example.org . Deadline: June 30, 2014. By submitting an essay you are giving us permission to publish your story. Thank you for telling your story- I look forward to being inspired by it!
