LONG BEACH, CA, August 26, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- World champion arm wrestler and public speaker, Carolyn Fisher, knows the struggle of balancing family and career. Featured on the AMC television hit Game of Arms, Mrs. Fisher is well known for her success in the arm wrestling and business industry. Fisher had a 30 year career in professional arm wrestling and claimed five world titles. She now uses her experience as a motivational speaker. She's also a devoted wife and mother, and has been in competitive gymnastics and coached for over 30 years. She has also been a professional mime and story teller and taught and entertained children in many countries in schools, and major events.
Mrs. Fisher is more than just a champion in business and sports. Fisher is now raising money for Marfan Syndrome. Marfan is a condition that is near and dear to the Fishers. This phenomenal experience is described by Fisher as "a lifelong lesson of compassion and understanding".
Marfan syndrome is a condition in which your body's connective tissue is abnormal. Connective tissue helps support all parts of your body and helps control how your body grows and develops. Marfan Syndrome affects the connective tissue of the heart and blood vessels, eyes, bones, lungs, and covering of the spinal cord. Because the condition affects many parts of the body, it can cause many complications some of which are life threatening. Their son, Austin, lives with the condition on a daily basis.
Carolyn Fisher will be participating in a half marathon (13 miles) on Saturday, October 12, 2014. We can't cure this or bring awareness alone. Fisher needs partners to help her meet her goal of $500.00. Every donation, regardless of size, is a generous and appreciated gift by Fisher and The Marfan Foundation. Donations can be made through her fund raising website
Mrs. Fisher is currently booking engagements about Marfan's, her career, and her holistic approach to life. Her goal is to empower individuals to realize and reach their full potential. To book Fisher, please contact her at 619-537-6471.
