I believe that if we truly want to make a better world, it is incumbent on us all to do good wherever we can.

I live by the motto: “All that which you do or strive for, whether for good or for ill, shall return to you one day. Strive for the good.

I was 6 years old when I was diagnosed with Legg Calve Perthes disease, a rare condition that affects only 1 in 1200 children worldwide. It causes necrotizing (Death) of bone tissue in the hip and causes severe pain and limitation of movement. I was told at a young age that I would not be able to participate in traditional high-impact sports. By the time my family contacted St Jude’s, I had resigned myself to a life of constant pain and limitation. The doctors we consulted with at St Jude’s gave us insight into my condition. They told us about the benefits of low impact exercise, like swimming and cycling for my condition. Now, 18 years later, I consider myself an athlete and I am passionate about fitness and nutrition. My passion has allowed me to excel in the areas of Weightlifting, MMA, Hockey, and I’m hoping Obstacle Courses as well.

I’m running as a St Jude’s warrior at this year’s Washington Warrior Dash. I know that had it not been for the efforts of everyone involved with the St Jude’s organization, I would not be able to compete in this event and I would not have found the joys in life that I have. I humbly ask that you help me to repay what Jude’s has given me by sponsoring me at this year’s Warrior Dash.

I know that it can be tough to part with your hard earned money, and I believe in balance. So I’m offering some incentives to show that I truly believe in what I’m doing here.

I believe in what I’m doing here, and I appreciate all sponsorships no matter their amount. The smallest ones often have the most meaning. Please show your support to all those children out there with stories like mine, and know that you truly are putting something good out into the world.

Thanks for listening.
