“Being able to efficiently move an 800lb boulder with a metal bar may not be highly regarded skill in today’s working world. However, through five seasons of a devoted practice of accepting mental and physical challenges, I have gained a certain mental fortitude and an understanding of my own capabilities that I don’t think I could have found elsewhere.” – Ryan Graig (Ryan first volunteered as a high school sophomore)
