Ricardo's College Football Dream

One of my best friends, Ricardo Benitez, has been offered the opportunity to continue his football career at Baylor University. He is a very unique and special individual, as you will see in the attached video. However, he is $20,000 short of being able to attend Baylor. By donating, you will be contributing to not only Ricardo, but to all the people that his story will be able reach. Ricardo's story has already been able to inspire, but imagine the power of his presence on a Division 1 football field. Imagine how inspired a kid with a disability will be by seeing Ricardo on that field. I have had the privilege of being very close to Ricardo for 3 years, and he has undoubtedly changed my life. It would mean so much to me if you could donate anything at all to help make his dreams come true. Ricardo would tell you that he looks at his disability as his superpower. He often says that what you may see as a disability, he sees as an opportunity to impact someone's life. That is the kind of person he is and the kind of message he was put on this earth to share.
