February 13-15, 2009
Marriott Hilton Head - Hilton Head Island, SC

Featured Guest Speakers Include:

Saturday, February 14, 2009, 7:30 a.m.
Oracene Price, known throughout the world as the mother of tennis legends Venus and Serena Williams, will share how her hands-on approach in the spiritual, physical, and professional development of her daughters has influenced their lives and the lives of countless others.

As Venus and Serena ascended into the highest ranks of the sport, Oracene expanded her mission to improve the lives of disenfranchised youth by establishing the OWL Foundation, whose mission is to ensure that every child is treated individually and provided with the opportunity to reach their full potential. Since its inception in 1999, the foundation has supported various schools and worthwhile programs that address learning development.

Sunday, February 15, 2009, 10:00 a.m.
Aimee Mullins, President of the Women's Sports Foundation, will close the 2009 CTDW. Both a record-breaking Paralympic athlete and aspiring actress and fashion model, Mullins became the first athlete with a disability to compete against able-bodied athletes as part of an NCAA Division I track team. Self Magazine named Aimee in 2007 one of the "10 Most Inspiring Women."

With a personality as vibrant as her talents, she also works to reach out to the community to help others recognize their own potential and talents, despite obstacles they may have to overcome. Aimee is a writer, motivational speaker, serves on the board of directors of Just One Break and Oxygen-Markle Pulse, and co-founded HOPE (Helping Others Perform with Excellence) to aid disabled people wanting to train and compete in sports.
