Featured Speaker: Aron Ralston
127 Hours: Between a Rock and a Hard Place
Free, but a ticket is required. Tickets available Oct. 22 at Main Hall information desk
Aron Ralston was hiking alone in remote Utah canyons when an 800-pound boulder tumbled loose, pinning his right hand and wrist. Trapped for six days, his remarkable will led him to use a dull multi-tool to sever his forearm, rappel a 65-foot cliff and hike for five hours before being rescued. His life-altering story is documented in the best-selling book, Between a Rock and a Hard Place, and the movie, 127 Hours. Aided by prosthetic devices that he helped design, Ralston inspires perseverance as he continues his adventurous lifestyle.
