"In 1994 the course of my life changed forever. Big Brothers Big Sisters had managed to create the "perfect match", when I met my "Big Brother" Rich, at the age of 10. We've done everything together. Everything any young boy would cherish and love to do with his dad. We would go to Sonics games, Mariners games, and play all types of sports together, (specifically basketball). Rich even coached my basketball team one year. We're both very competitive. You name it, we've made a competition out of it! We would go camping, do lunches, go see movies, hit the batting cages, go golfing, participate in every event BBBS offered, along with volunteer events...the list goes on and on.
We've had so much fun over the years, but it's been much more than fun and games. I grew up with just my mom and my sister around. Mom was working two, sometimes three jobs, all while going to school, and still managing to get home to put dinner on the table for us kids, but she needed help. My dad wasn't around due to addiction and abuse, and I needed a male mentor to give me the guidance that my mom just wasn't sure how to give. And as strong of a woman as she is, and I've never met any stronger, she found the help in the most amazing organization I've ever had the pleasure in being a part of, Big Brothers Big Sisters.
My Big Brother, Rich, has been above all, a role model. He has been the man I have looked to for all of those things most kids would go to their dad for and he's been the closest thing to a father figure I've ever had. He shaped me from a 10 year old kid with no direction, to a man who wants to give back and it's all thanks to Big Brothers Big Sisters!"
