In the time our son has been a student at Park Slope Champions, we've seen a massive improvement in his balance, coordination, confidence, and self discipline. The head instructor, Master Kim, has been essential for our son's progress. She's encouraging and works through issues the student may have have with a form, punch or kick. The classes are fun and engaging and got him excited as he learns. We couldn't ask for more. Thank you Master Kim!
I use this speech to show underrep youth on what impact they can have.

HEC is a christian retreat for the disabled. It started in 1956 and they're still going strong. The foundation of the community is about recognizing our brokenness, and that God is the center of our lives. I've been a part of the community since I was 16, and though I have some weird concepts about god, (some of which I learned there), I can attest that it is a community that is as accepting as it is loving. There are thousands of stories of charity and courage in this tiny group of people. It's been a constant source of inspiration to see people take care of each other throughout the years.
I used to ride through almost flat the streets of a mountain - but this I can't imagine doing...
I created GoodLyfe to celebrate people that do great things, big or small. It's a way to count our blessings when our lives are faced with challenges and struggles. The act of looking for positivity in our everyday lives changes our perspective and gives us clarity on the many blessings we take for granted. I hope you enjoy the stories you find here and share some of your own.
