URSA’s Reach for the Stars Fundraising Banquet
Friday, June 13, 2014
Universal Rehabilitation Service Agency (URSA) is a Calgary based charity building a caring and
compassionate community for children and adults with developmental disabilities and brain
injury survivors, for the past 28 years.
WHO: Guest speaker Colonel Chris Hadfield – Canadian Astronaut and former Commander of
the International Space Station.
“Good morning, Earth.” That is how Colonel Chris Hadfield—writing on Twitter—woke up the
world every day while living aboard the International Space Station for over five months. Since
blasting off from Kazakhstan in December 2012, Hadfield has become a worldwide sensation,
harnessing the power of social media to make outer space accessible to millions and infusing a
sense of wonder into the collective consciousness not felt since man first walked on the moon.
Called “the most famous astronaut since Neil Armstrong,” Hadfield, now safely back on Earth,
continues to bring the glory of science and space travel to everyone he encounters.
