    Training like Athletes

    I’m elated to see the progress of our Citizen Athletes. As Citizen Athletes we have a responsibility to give back to our communities as active, engaged citizens. The impact of an athlete can reach beyond the playing field into classrooms, neighborhoods, playgrounds and drugs stores like Tom’s where public conversations take place. Open dialect is key to understanding and knocking down barriers. I’m glad to read about our Citizen Athletes and their conversation; as we continue this work so will we see more athletes join this movement. As I read I can’t help but to think about Citizen Athletes of the past like Paul Robeson, Muhammad Ali and Jim Brown. Great men who had an effect on society not only as Athletes but as Citizen Athletes. This was a great article!
