    OXNARD, CA, February 22, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Despite being born with arms that end at his elbows and legs near the knees, Kyle Maynard is teaching people around the world that there are no worthy excuses, no matter how challenging your difficulties may seem. As the first man to crawl on his own to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, Maynard will tell his inspirational message as the keynote speaker for Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme's 12th Annual Great Futures for Kids Breakfast. The breakfast, a fundraiser to support the Club, will be held 7-9 a.m., March 13 at the Residence Inn by Marriott at River Ridge, 2101 W. Vineyard Ave., Oxnard.

The breakfast event is a community rally to help create Great Futures for Kids by supporting Club programs that ensure children graduate from high school and achieve self-sufficiency, along with possessing a strong character and leadership skills. Families pay $20 per year to become members of the Club; the Club pays the remaining $500 per year in program fees for each child. It's money well spent, as members of BGCOP have higher graduation rates and lower teen pregnancy and crime rates than area youth, resulting in a 1,200 percent return on donor investments.

"Our 2014 campaign goal is to raise $100,000 to help us provide the quality programs and services to our more than 9,000 Oxnard youth and their families," said Tim Blaylock, BGCOP Chief Professional Officer. "Kyle is an incredible motivational speaker who challenges audiences to not give up, to strive to accomplish their loftiest goals."

A motivational speaker, author, entrepreneur and athlete, Maynard was born with a disability known as congenital amputation. Despite this challenge, he has wrestled for one of the best teams in the Southeast, set records in weightlifting, fought in mixed martial arts, among many other things.
This year's title sponsor is California Heavy Oil. For sponsorship opportunities, contact Kelly Ventimiglia at 805-815-4959 or To make a donation to the campaign, visit
