Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly

Retired American astronaut and U.S. Navy Captain Mark Kelly and former state legislator and U.S. Congresswoman Gabby Giffords represent the very essence of American service and heroism. Ever since an assassination attempt severely wounded Gabby in 2011, the couple has inspired the world with their story of hope and courage in the wake of tragedy, serving as a symbol for the possibility of second chances.

Gabby and Mark will tell the story of their journey and share inspiration for summoning courage through tough times and on the path to new goals. They will leave you with a new appreciation for the tenacity of those who refuse to be defeated, and the motivation to face and overcome any challenge with passion, bravery and your very best.
