Gold Medalist Jim Craig Visits Bay Club Children

jcraig2Bay Club Member and Olympic Gold Medalist Jim Craig visited the children at Club Seahorse this summer to share with them what it takes to compete for, and earn, the Gold.

Jim earned his medal in Lake Placid at the 1980 Winter Olympics.  As the goalie for the United States hockey team, he helped to lead the team in the unforgettable upset over the Soviet Union.

Jim spoke to the listeners about the importance of having a dream and the determination and willingness to do your best to make that dream come true.  He also reminded the children about the time and effort put in by parents in helping their children reach their goals and to be sure to thank them for their dedication.

Jim approached each and every child to shake their hands and learned their names.  He also posed for a picture with each one individually allowing the child to hold the medal.  All of those who heard his story were fascinated and the timing couldn’t have been better as the visit fell in line with the excitement of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio.
