TRUST Annual Meeting

Going Virtual in 2020!

Our Annual Meeting offers an opportunity to reflect on the TRUST's accomplishments as we look forward to the future. We will honor outgoing board members and introduce new leaders. Additionally, the TRUST will celebrate this year's Mentor of the Year as well as our 2020 Jean Harris Award recipient. 

Plus, you'll hear from Kara Richardson Whitely, renowned author, speaker and adventurer, who will share how to overcome mountains as she reflects on her personal experience of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro at 300 lbs. She'll inspire you as you hear how to always purse your dreams and health--no matter what obstacle or size you might be.

This event is free to members and $10.00 for nonmembers.

More about Moving Mountains:

Develop the resilience and tenacity to conquer any obstacle and reach your goals, while helping others. In these times, connection and courage is more important than ever. Kara Richardson Whitely will talk about her journey from the depths of self doubt and binge eating disorder to the top of Kilimanjaro and on to a movie deal. She will share the steps she took with the aim of inspiring you to head boldly in the direction of your dreams.


About our Guest Speaker: Kara Richardson Whitely

Live life. And love it. The true joy in life is living it. Without fear, reservation, or compromise. There was a time when Kara Richardson Whitely was stuck waiting for happiness to arrive. It took her years to realize the irony of it all: Happiness was always right there. And it was waiting on her.

Kara Richardson Whitely is an author, public speaker and adventurer. She took on Africa's highest peak three times and wrote Gorge: My Journey Up Kilimanjaro at 300 Pounds and The Weight of Being. Gorge is being made into a major motion picture by Amazon Studios with Chrissy Metz (who plays Kate on This Is Us) producing and starring as her. She has been featured in The New York Times and on Good Morning America, The Today Show, CBS' The Talk and countless other media outlets.

It is now her mission to share her story and inspire others to take bold steps and move mountains in their lives.
