Matt Long
17-Year Veteran of the FDNY, Elite Athlete & Author of The Long Run 
Matt’s story was covered in a wildly popular article in the March 2009 edition of Runner’s World magazine. Matt has since chronicled his life and journey both before and after he was struck and run over by a 20-ton bus in his book The Long Run, released in October 2010. Matt has also started the I WILL Foundation which provides coaching, training and financial support to help people overcome adversity and challenges caused by illness or traumatic injury. 

Matt’s heartfelt presentation takes listeners through the ups and downs he’s faced throughout his life and is sure to inspire audiences across America. He currently resides in New York City.
