Make Moments Matter
ALS is a neurological disease that took the life of my father February 2014. My dad was always - and will always continue to be my number one coach. I have learned so much as a person and athlete from his guidance and from his courage in his fight against ALS. Life gets real really fast, so you have to be the person you want to become, and make it matter.
It's been such an amazing opportunity to share my message and raise awareness for ALS, a special thanks to Thomas Dudley Productions
