The “Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend,” tour, powered by WME Live, will have Purdy join Oprah on stage for Toyota’s “Standing O-Vation,” which will recognize extraordinary people in communities around the country.

Purdy, a Team Toyota athlete and brand ambassador, represents the power of inner strength and is a role model for those who have faced challenges in their lives.
