Hector Picard is a internationally-known motivational speaker and triathlete who lost both arms in an electrical accident 25 years ago.
He is a husband, father of 4, and grandfather.
Finisher of 150+ triathlons since 2009 that include 5 Ironman distances.
Instead of giving up or feeling sorry for himself he decided to Don't Stop Living. As the founder of DontStopLiving.org
a website setup to inspire others to live life to the fullest, Hector shows us all that life is a gift meant to be enjoyed. His unique way of "juggling" family, dating and then marriage, as well as a successful career will inspire all that attend his presentations.
Hector has also completed two long distance USA cross country bike rides, from Fort Lauderdale to New York City in 2012 and most recently from Miami to Spokane, Washington, when Hector raised money for a baby in need of prosthetics. Through his creative approach to fundraising, which has been televised across the country, Hector Picard shows us that anything is possible.
