Leigh Pate to Share her Adventures at Room to Read Event
Join Room to Read for a powerful evening of insight, inspiration, and dialogue with Leigh Pate, an independent political and public affairs consultant, who regularly takes breaks from work to travel and keep life in perspective.
A once self described "career obsessed, overweight, Tums eating, workaholic" turned athlete, adventurer and philanthropist: Leigh embraced new challenges including triathlons, half marathons, and a bike ride across America.
Leigh will take you on her most recent journey providing a window into the culture, the people, and what she learned as she cycled from the foot of the Taj Mahal to the southern-most tip of India. Q&A session to follow.
This unique and inexpensive event will be inspiring for cyclists and travellers interested in India. There are some great bike-related door prizes, and a raffle which will include a gift certificate for a leg of an upcoming Tour d'Afrique bicycle tour – valued at up to $2,000.
We hope you can join us!
