CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Joe Gibbs, NASCAR team owner and former Washington Redskins coach, will speak to a crowd of about 800 at his "Game Plan for Life" breakfast from 7 to 8:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Charleston Civic Center.
Gibbs, a 1996 Inductee into Pro Football Hall of Fame, currently owns Joe Gibbs Racing, which operates three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams and three NASCAR Nationwide Series teams. He won three Super Bowls (Super Bowl XVII, Super Bowl XXII, & Super Bowl XXVI) as head coach of the Redskins and has captured three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championships as owner of JGR (2000, 2002 & 2005).
The breakfast is an outreach event with Gibbs sharing his testimony and pointing people back to the Bible for their game plan for life. Gibbs released his New York Times bestseller, "Game Plan for Life," in the summer of 2009 and now seeks to reach as many people as he can with its message.
The cost of the breakfast has been paid for by table sponsors and there are a limited number of seats still available for those who would like to attend. Attendees will receive a free copy of Gibbs' book. Those interested in attending should contact event organizer John deBlecourt, executive director of Believe in West Virginia, at 304-552-7601 or by email at gamepla...@believeinwv.org.
