Back on My Feet in Boston’s Annual Breakfast & Auction

Join us for an amazing morning as we celebrate the accomplishments of our members and supporters in Boston.

Emcee: Adrianne Haslet

Adrianne Haslet has survived the terrorist bombings at the 2013 Boston Marathon where she lost her left leg below the knee. She is quickly rising to meet her daily challenges head on with a unique perspective. In 2013, being a full time professional ballroom dancer at the peak of her career, she has had to learn an entirely new meaning to the word patience. In the wake of the marathon, she has become an inspiration through her positive attitude. She has since returned to the dance floor, winning her first competition back, and ran the 2016 and 2018 Boston Marathons. Appearing on CNN, Dancing With The Stars, The View and many other media outlets, Adrianne hopes her emotional honesty will serve as an example for others looking to overcome adversity in their own lives. She has spoken alongside Vice President Biden, President Bill Clinton, numerous TED talks, and many others around the globe. She has been named one of Cosmo’s Most Powerful Women and Bing’s most Inspirational Women. She was honored at the Kennedy Center Concert Against Hate by the ADL for her work against terrorism, extremists, and bigotry. Adrianne has a documentary detailing her first year as an amputee titled The Survivor Diaries which she did with Anderson Cooper. She speaks out against Congress and Medicare and turned over the one leg a lifetime law in New York, as well as Medicare’s appeal to take away prosthetic coverage. She has assisted aid in Ecuador and Nepal after the earthquakes helping  amputees. Adrianne’s quote, “I let the space between where I am and where I need to be inspire me,” rings true for everyone struggling with something in their own lives.

Honoree: Tom Grilk

Tom Grilk, President of the Boston Athletic Association, will be honored with this year’s Community Pacesetter Award. During his time with the BAA, Grilk’s community service initiatives have been far-reaching and highly impactful.
