Pain to Purpose: Inspiring Resiliency to Reach Your Finish Line

While it is easier said than done, inspiring your inner resiliency is key to overcoming setbacks in your life.  But how do you do it? In the wise words of Rebekah Gregory, “We get what we work for, but more importantly, we get what we FIGHT for.” 

Rebekah Gregory is well-versed in hardship and overcoming the unpredictability life can offer. On April 15, 2013, Rebekah’s life was forever changed due to an act of terrorism that shook the entire world. 

As she and her five-year-old son cheered on runners at the Boston Marathon, two bombs detonated just three feet from where she sat.  While the horrific attack claimed her leg, it did not diminish her fighting spirit.  

Since then, Rebekah has made it her mission to turn immeasurable pain and trauma into her life’s purpose.

Rebekah is an author, a coach and founder of a nonprofit that provides funding for mental health therapy and has even run a portion of the Boston Marathon herself!

  • Respond to change and adversity
