Christian City's Annual Night of Hope, May 20
Christian City will host their annual Night of Hope event to benefit the Children’s Village on May 20 at the Georgia International Convention Center. Christian City has been caring for abandoned and abused children in a family centered residential setting since 1965. Well over 1,000 children have called Christian City “home.”
Guests will enjoy a delicious dinner, silent auction and an inspiring message from Josh Sundquist, a Paralympic ski racer and nationally known inspirational speaker. He has been featured on CNN and in USA TODAY and has spoken to hundreds of thousands of people across the country.
At age nine, Sundquist was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer and given a fifty percent chance to live. He spent a year on chemotherapy treatments and his left leg was amputated. Doctors declared him cured of the disease at age 13 and he took up ski racing three years later. He trained for the next six years and in 2006 he was named to the US Paralympic Ski Team for the 2006 Paralympics in Turino, Italy.
Sundquist released his new book “Just Don’t Fall,” a memoir, on January 21, 2010 and the book became a National Bestseller. “Just Don't Fall” isn't just the story of a boy becoming a man, but of a champion realizing his greatest aspiration. Sundquist will be signing copies of his book at the Night of Hope.
