Two-time Olympic Gold Medalist to speak at Morrisville State College

MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – Two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and founder of the ProFastpitch X-treme Softball Tour (PFX), Dr. Dorothy “Dot” Richardson, will be conducting a motivational speech and question and answer session on the Morrisville State College campus, Thursday, March 8th from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm in the college’s John W. Stewart Center for Student Activities theater.

The four-time gold medalist in the Pan American games and five-time world champion won Olympic Games gold medals in 1996 and 2000 in softball. Richardson is the author of two books, “Go For It! A Conversation about being You!” and “Living the Dream, the Dot Richardson Story”, and has served as a motivational speaker for young women for several years.

In 2006, Richardson founded the PFX tour, bringing professional softball athletes together with amateurs to meet and compete at showcase events. The goal of the PFX tour is to inspire young athletes and others to recognize the gifts they have been given and to work hard to live their dreams. Richardson will be bringing the PFX tour to the Syracuse area later this spring.

The event is open to the public. For more information, please contact the Morrisville State College Office of Sports Information at 315-684-6250.
