Nationally known motivational speaker Mark Moore will deliver the Commencement Address at Florence-Darlington Technical College’s graduation on Thursday night, May 10, 2018 at the Florence Center.
The McLean, Virginia resident uses his life struggles to connect with listeners. He’s the author of, A Stroke of Faith: A Stroke Survivor's Story of a Second Chance at Living a Life of Significance. His book tells the story of back-to-back strokes in 2007 that almost ended his life. Moore recovered and ran a 5K charity run just one year after his hospitalization. Moore credits his Christian faith with overcoming the many obstacles from major strokes.
Moore is now serving as the mid-Atlantic Ambassador for Empowered to Serve, a major initiative of the American Heart Association in reaching out to faith-based and African American communities. He is also the National Ambassador for the program, speaking all over the country about his faith, stroke prevention and stroke recovery. In that capacity, Moore shares his message at churches, hospitals, clinics, wellness centers and community centers as well as presenting workshops.
Along with his wife, Moore established the Mark and Brenda Moore Foundation in 2010. The foundation supports advances in healthcare, education, the arts and Christian Evangelism. Their foundation has contributed to a wide variety of causes including Mount Vernon Hospital’s expansion program, Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, Posse Foundation, Hopkins House Early Childhood Learning, Community Coalition for Haiti and the John Leland Center for Theological Studies.
The Moore’s also have strongly supported the arts. Their foundation has contributed to the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, the National Symphony Orchestra and other cultural institutions.
