Keynote Speaker
Earl Young is a survivor, a 1960 Olympic gold medal winner in the 1600 meter relay, an Abilene Christian University alumnus, and has served as an advisor, corporate officer, and director for companies/organizations both here in the U.S. and abroad. In September 2010, Mr. Young was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and was the recipient of a Bone Marrow Transplant in January 2011. Since overcoming blood cancer, he has raised awareness for the need of bone marrow and stem cell donors through his foundation, Earl Young's Team. Because of the work of his foundation, nearly 14,000 donors have been registered and 40 people have received the transplant they've needed.
