James Rheaume: Husband - Son - Brother - Friend - Mentor - Coach - Poet - Obstacle Course Racer - Big ball of energy! Growing up I faced many life events that lead to the darkest time in my life. At the age of 17 I decided to commit suicide The decision came from being bullied, sexually assaulted, my mother daily battle, growing up poor, and other things. At the end of the day it all came back to one main thing “I felt alone”. The only reason I am here today is because of one kind gesture. Allow me the opportunity to come and share this story of going from hopeless to hopeful. I promise you it will leave your audience inspired.
