Retired professional skater Scott Hamilton is largely known for his tall list of achievements as a figure skater: He earned an Olympic gold medal in 1984, has been awarded over 70 titles and honors in his career, was inducted into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame, and is a member of the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame. But aside from being an Olympic champion, Hamilton holds an array of other titles. He's a television broadcaster, a motivational speaker, an author, and an eternal optimist. 

He's also a philanthropist. In 2014, following his mother's passing from cancer and his own survival of the disease, Hamilton launched the Scott Hamilton CARES (Cancer Alliance for Research, Education and Survivorship) Foundation. The mission of the non-profit is to improve cancer patient survivorship by supporting world class cancer research and the highest quality patient treatment and care. 

The same year, he founded the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy, in partnership with the NHL's Nashville Predators, at Ford Ice Center in Antioch, TN to offer students programs to help them fall in love with ice skating.

Added to his long list of accomplishments is being a sought-after keynote speaker for all types of groups, including associations. Hamilton can be booked with the help of the Goodman Speakers Bureau, Inc. For more information, contact Diane Goodman via email or at 860-687-1116.
