You'll enjoy an evening of inspirational stories of strength and determination from her attempt to set multiple world records while battling Rheumatoid Arthritis. 

Traci's story is one of endurance and hope. Her goal is to inspire others who are struggling with chronic illnesses or disabilities to “Never Give Up!" She paddled Lake Huron, Lake Michigan and Lake Superior and managed 1/2 of Lake Erie and only part of Lake Ontario before brought her quest to a halt. She completed 3591 miles in 9 months and set a few records including being the first person to circumnavigate the 3 largest lakes in a Surf Ski kayak
