NAPERVILLE, IL — Dealer Inspire’s 2nd Annual REFUEL, to be held on December 4, 2018, at Yellow Box Church in Naperville, IL, is a special one-day event that brings the community together to unplug, gain new perspectives, embrace physical and mental health, and learn how to create and reach personal goals from world renowned speakers and coaches. This year’s keynote speakers include:

  • Dan Harris, ABC News Anchor and best-selling author of 10% Happier
  • Doug Collins, TV Analyst and Former NBA Coach and Player
  • Mel Robbins, CNN commentator, television host, and motivational speaker
  • Manoush Zomordoi, journalist, author, and host of the Note To Self Podcast

In addition to a full day of motivational speakers, attendees have a slate of instructional classes to choose from including yoga, meditation, and nutrition. All the proceeds from ticket sales — available to purchase online for $50 — will be donated to Loaves & Fishes, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger and transforming lives in DuPage County.

“We all spend so much of the year working for our families, for our companies”, said Joe Chura, CEO of Dealer Inspire. “This event is an opportunity to invest in yourself and your community for just one day that will help you refuel after a long year, and put yourself on a path to reach new personal goals in 2019. Last year Sergeant Cedric King motivated seven attendees to run the Chicago Marathon and they all just completed that goal together. It’s an experience that can inspire you to do extraordinary things.”

Large screens and audio-video enhanced the stage where Sergeant Cedric King told his story of resilience.

REFUEL was first conceived as a private event for Dealer Inspire employees, but Chura quickly realized that filling the remaining seats with Naperville-area neighbors could not only help inspire more community members, but give back to those in need as well. Dealer Inspire shares office space with Loaves and Fishes, a local hunger-relief agency where employees frequently volunteer, so he put tickets on sale to the public with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly to  Loaves and Fishes to feed local families this holiday season.
