Dr. Ronan Tynan to Speak, Perform at Sanders-Brown Dinner Nov. 11
Singer, physician, athlete and inspirational speaker Dr. Ronan Tynan is no stranger to adversity. When Tynan was 20, his legs had to be amputated below the knee after an auto accident caused serious complications. Just weeks after the operation, he was climbing up the steps of his college dorm, and within a year, he was winning gold medals in the Paralympics as a multitalented athlete.
Between 1981 and 1984, Tynan amassed 18 gold medals and 14 world records, of which he still holds nine. Trained as a physician, Tynan began his remarkable singing career through formal music study at the age of 33, achieving great success as a member of the famed Irish Tenors prior to establishing his career as a solo artist.
After overcoming such unbelievable odds and maneuvering numerous difficult obstacles, Tynan’s faces a challenge shared by millions: His mother’s vibrant spirit has been taken away by the long night of Alzheimer’s disease.
Tynan will speak and perform at the 27th annual University of Kentucky Sanders-Brown Center on Aging Foundation Dinner to be held Nov. 11. The event, presented and sponsored by Alltech, will be held at the Lexington Center in downtown Lexington, with more than 600 people expected to attend.
The dinner will fund internationally recognized ongoing research at the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging, where researchers are engaged in the battle against Alzheimer's disease and other age-related illnesses. Individual tickets to the dinner are $175 each, with proceeds benefiting SBCoA. Corporate and individual table sponsorships are available starting at $1,500.
