Athlete to speak at financial forum May 12


Motivational speaker and Paralympic athlete Ron Williams will speak at a free Financial Fitness Forum sponsored by Westchester County on Tuesday, May 12 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the County Center in White Plains.
The program will discuss how to manage personal finances and credit, save for college or retirement, deal with identity theft, and shop for mortgages. Williams will talk about overcoming challenges, setting goals and working toward them. He will make a connection between physical and financial fitness in terms of the discipline, skill and practice needed to achieve personal success.
The free program is part of a countywide financial education initiative that includes a money management Web site (www.westchestergov.com/managingmoney) and a “Dollar Sense” workshop series that will run throughout the year.
One workshop, aimed at seniors and retirees, will take place May 7 at the Neighborhood House in Tarrytown. It’s entitled, “Stretching Your Dollars: Managing Your Money Today.”
To sign up for the May 12 forum, register at www.westchestergov.com/financialforum or call (914) 995-2913.
