Tell us about yourself.

 I was put on this Earth to serve people. That includes a dedication of my life to healthcare and protecting the vulnerable. I love to spend time with loved ones and be outdoors. Born and raised in south Louisiana, hospitality and family are very important to me. I’m a very happy father of a 10-year-old daughter, who means the world to me. 

 

Have you participated in the Don’t Quit Half Marathon & 5K before?

I have! I ran the 5K in 2019 and absolutely love the message and the goal of the run. 

 

Why are you running in this year’s Don’t Quit Half Marathon & 5K?

I love to run and more importantly I love to run for reasons that I’m passionate about. If I can run for those who cannot and help raise funds for a cause, then I’m all about that. 

 

What does “Don’t Quit” mean to you?

 Don’t quit to me means that you can be knocked down or so tired to where you’re crawling, but that’s ok. You don’t quit. Be present and understand that the only thing you can control is the present moment. Live in and conquer it. 

  

Do you have any tips for someone who may be struggling with mental health issues?

 Seek professional help. Your friends will have the best intentions and love you, but they can’t truly give you the help you need. 

 

What is your favorite inspirational quote that keeps you doing?
