Meeting Michael in Boston

Posted: July 7, 2011 in News

It was a great pleasure for Centre staff to meet Michael Korpi at the National Council on Problem Gambling conference in Boston. Michael, a recovering gambler, set out from Seattle Washington in October 2010 to walk across America to raise awareness about problem gambling. His journey culminated on June 30, 2011, almost 8 months later, in Boston where he led NCPG conference delegates on a symbolic walk through the Boston Gardens and Boston Commons and into the meeting venue to kick off the 25th annual conference. For more information about Michael and his remarkable accomplishment, please be sure to read our upcoming newsletter for our interview with him during the Boston conference.
