Courage, Connection & Badassery Event

BADASS WINNERS! We were moved by the challenges and courage so many people face on a daily basis. We’d love to have you all on the stage, but we can’t, we had to choose.

Our two winners were Nicola (Nix) Adams and Anita Hinton (I Got Your Back Pack) Their stories, humility and generous spirits are nothing short of totally inspiring.
