Memorial Day and it’s a special day of reflection and remembrance for ALL American servicemen and women who gave their lives fighting for our FREEDOM. It’s because of their ultimate sacrifice that we are able to pursue our dreams and live our PURPOSE here on Earth.
I have been truly blessed in my Life and I continue to LIVE my PURPOSE, “to Inspire millions to GREATNESS.”
Our May theme video is a special one for me to share, because I share where my life started and was molded, back at the Jersey Shore in BRICK, New Jersey.
BRICK is where I learned, loved, lived, lead… and then some. It is a place that I cherish and will always hold dear to my heart. BRICK is about great PEOPLE that positively IMPACTED my LIFE, many of whom are shown in this video– family, friends, classmates, teammates, coaches, and neighbors. It was an honor to return to BRICK to host a JERSEY STRONG event in conjunction with the BRICK Relay For Life event, benefiting the American Cancer Society. There were “many” moving parts that had to come together to make this event possible (as it went from thought to vision to execution all in less than 3 weeks), and I will cover some of the particulars on STAGING and DELIVERING a Fun, Inspiring and Engaging LIVE EVENT Experience in another document.
For today, I encourage you to take the 65 minutes to view this video compilation of some of the highlights of my time in BRICK this past month. Segments include:
- My Introduction (from the football field)
- NBC STRONG cast and BRICK family and friends connecting
- A Local Media interview
- My reunion with Coach Warren Wolf
- My address to The Relay For Life attendees
- The NBC STRONG cast leading a great group workout for all
- Final breakdown and huddle
- Sound-bites from friends, family and TD Masterminders
- The Relay for Life – “Luminary Ceremony”
- My address at BRICK Township High School to the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders
Life is about ‘relationships’ Masterminders. Always remember it is about WHO we have in our LIVES…not WHAT we have in our LIVES that counts. And Brick NJ is my ROOTS and I am super proud to have gone back there and created a special event & IMPACT. Hope you enjoy!
I hope you get a sense of ‘home’ and where I grew up from the video.
