Steak & Burger Dinner Guest Speaker

A 'Role Model' for Living a Positive Life
A young man who has inspired audiences nationwide will be the featured speaker at the upcoming Steak & Burger Dinner, one of the principal fundraising events of the Boys & Girls Club of the Northern Neck (BGCNN). 

Nationally recognized motivational speaker Rohan Murphy, who lost both his legs at birth, will headline this fourth annual fundraising event at the BGCNN facility at 6.00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 4. 

According to Philip Mumford, BGCNN Executive Director, Murphy epitomizes the three values that guide all activity at the club. 

“We build our programs around academic success, the maintenance of healthy lifestyles, and the development of good character and citizenship,” he said. “And Rohan Murphy is a wonderful poster child for all three.” 

Murphy, 31 years old, overcame almost insurmountable odds as he began wrestling during his freshman year of high school and as he continued his winning sports career at Penn State University. In addition to being a wrestling champion, he is an accomplished power lifter who has represented the United States in international events. 

Having lived his whole life motivating people by his actions, Murphy is now motivating Americans by his words delivered face-to-face in events such as these. The organizer of one recent event said: “Rohan Murphy is not a motivational speaker. He is a life changer!”
