Book Signing with Olympic Gold Medalist and Author Scott Hamilton
Saturday, February 18, 2023 from 121pm at The Bookstore Plus
(before the Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer Frozen 5k event from 4-6PM at the James C. Sheffield Speed Skating Oval).
Scott will autograph copies of his books Fritzy Finds a Hat, Finish First: Winning Changes Everything, and The Great Eight.
Scott Hamilton captured the attention of the world with his Olympic Gold medal performances in Saravejo and since has shared his love and enthusiasm for the sport as a analyst/commentator, performer, producer and best-selling author. He further inspires others as a speaker, humanitarian, and as a cancer and pituitary brain tumor survivor.
After losing his mother to cancer, then becoming survivor himself, Scott turned activist, launching the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation (Cancer Alliance for Research, Education and Survivorship). Events such as Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer fund research into treatments that treat the cancer and spare the patient harm.
