Cathy Parker, author of Northern Lights: One Woman, Two Teams, and the Football Field That Changed Their LivesShe will discuss her book an inspiring story and beautiful reminder of how we’re sometimes called to the most unlikely of causes—and how, when we believe in something bigger than ourselves, we can change our own lives and the lives of others for the better.

 

Cathy Parker had no idea her life was about to change until ESPN feature about a football team from the Arctic Circle lit a fire in her soul that she couldn’t ignore. A stirring within her to help the Barrow Whalers football team in a struggling community in Barrow, Alaska, almost 4,000 miles away from her home in Jacksonville, Florida, started a nationwide movement that raised over half a million dollars to build an artificial-turf stadium for a team that needed it. Overcoming obstacle after obstacle, what started out as a call within Cathy became so much bigger and brought two football teams together in surprising (and sometimes hilarious) ways. Her book and the story that will soon be a major motion picture from director Andy Tennant (Sweet Home Alabama, Hitch, Ever After).

Cathy Parker and her husband, Carl, have raised four children, all at the ballfields. Cathy has experienced the extreme highs and lows of raising athletes and can relate to the toll athletics can have on the family. She founded the not-for-profits to help athletes and their families deal with the realities of sports and use their influence for good. Her not-for-profits are Athletes To Champions and Beyond the Ballfield.
