Survival – To endure or live through.
Aron Ralston knows the meaning of survival intimately. While hiking alone in Canyonlands National Park in Utah, Ralston found himself in an unpredictable situation. Climbing down from a wedged boulder, the rock suddenly came loose and pinned his right arm against the canyon wall. He was trapped and no one knew where he was.
The Chartered Property Casual Underwriter Insurance Institute of America (CPCUIIA) will be hosting Aron Ralston to speak at their annual conference on Saturday, August 29, 2009 at 3:30pm at the Colorado Convention Center’s Four Seasons Ballroom, where he will tell his story of ultimate survival. CPCUIIA selected the Cottonwood Institute to be the beneficiary of a percentage of Ralston’s book sales, Between A Rock And A Hard Place, during the conference, which will support our Jason F. Griffith Scholarship Fund.
