Because I can…
I believe in giving back & passing it on. I’ve been given a platform, so I use it to share what I’ve learned and experienced to benefit others. I really like the quote from the movie, The History Boys: “Pass the parcel. That’s sometimes all you can do. Take it, feel it, and pass it on. Not for me, not for you, but for someone, somewhere, one day.” I don’t do all this for myself; I do it to give hope to others, to inspire them to do more, fight harder, and be the best they can be. Everyone has limitations, but I want to inspire every person to go out and be the “hero of your own story.”


That’s not to say I don’t get anything out of the deal. I’m rewarded every time I hear that what I’ve said or done has made a difference for someone. I coach pole-vaulting, because I was good at it and I have a lot of experience to offer. I’m passing it on…
My coach helped me succeed, because he believed in this skinny little high school kid. Now, it’s my turn to help others succeed, whether it’s in pole-vaulting, fighting back against CF, or inspiring others to achieve their dreams. I’m just passing it on in life.
