Peak Vista Community Health Centers (Peak Vista) announces the keynote speaker for its nineteenth annual fundraising event, the Breakfast of Champions®: Connor Fields.

Connor Fields

Fields is a three-time Olympian, two-time World Champion, and the first American to win Olympic BMX Gold. As one of the world's all-time greatest BMX racers, Fields has represented the United States more than 50 times in more than 25 countries. At 17-years-old, he became the youngest rider to ever podium a BMX World Cup.

At the 2021 Tokyo Games, as the number one seed in his semi-final and on pace to battle for another medal, Fields experienced one of the worst crashes in Summer Olympic history. Today, Fields continues to ride and coach BMX, all while sharing his physical and mental recovery story and championing the importance of mental health for all.

“I am personally and professionally grateful for the partnership we have found with our keynote speaker this year,” said President & CEO, Dr. Emily Ptaszek. “Connor is insightful, open, and, above all, passionate about helping others. We look forward to working with him to enhance Peak Vista’s reach and really help shine a light on our critical mission.”
