Come out and see special speaker Gabe Hurley as he discusses his experience of being hit by a reckless teenage driver, moving on from tragedy and rocking on! Hurley will speak this Wednesday, January 8, from 7:30-8:30 p.m. at Montclair High School in the LGI Room, Main Building. The event is free and open to the public.
Hurley is a 29-year-old man from Middlesex County who was the victim of a car crash four years ago that changed his life forever. Gabe's face is disfigured, he is now blind and has no sense of smell and only a partial sense of taste because of a teen's reckless driving. One would think this would be the end for an accomplished Rutgers graduate and incredibly talented rock guitarist, but Gabe's positive attitude and desire to share his story of "moving on" from tragedy make him an exceptional person and engaging speaker. He can still rock out on guitar and does so in his presentation. He is also in the same band he has been in with his friends since 1999!
Gabe will be presenting to new drivers in the Montclair High School Driver's Ed class in the morning and will be speaking to the Montclair community in the evening on Jan. 8th. He would like to continue speaking at schools and anywhere else and you can help by sharing his story. Click here to learn more about him from The Star Ledger.
Come on out and support a fellow rocker!
