CBS 11 NEWS – You could call Chrisy Dopson, or “Saber” as she’s known on the road, a real life wonder woman. This North Texan is proud to be the only woman on a team known for amazing feats of strength.

“Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to do something big with my life”.

The only female member of the “Power Team” can now do things few men or women can do.

One of the most popular, and longest running school assemblies in the country, the power team is more than musclebound — they’re motivational speakers.

“I always tell the kids it’s never a time to give up, quit or cave in as long as you have another day, as long as you have breath in your body. Life can always get better, “ says Dopson.

Power Team president & CEO  Todd Keene says prevention programs like this have been cut from many district budgets — but with a rise in anxiety, abuse & suicide, their message of hope is more vital.

“The seriousness of it has gone to a whole other level. Now we’re talking life and death — every single day”, says Keene.

The Power Team has traveled internationally for 40 years. It’s a legacy Dobson hopes inspires other young women.

The Power Team speaks not only to schools but to veterans, prison inmates and churches. A free rally kicks off in Arlington at Trinity United Methodist Church in Arlington Wednesday at 7 pm. Events will be held through the weekend.

THIS WEEK: July 23 – 27, 2014

Wed – Sat @ 7PM

Sunday @ 4PM


Trinity United Methodist Church

1200 W. Green Oaks Blvd.

Arlington, TX 76013
