Episode 204 - The Give Team

The Give Team.jpg

The Give Team is an obstacle course racing team and leadership program composed of students from the New Image Youth Center located in the inner city Parramore neighborhood in Orlando, Florida, a neighborhood once named among the most dangerous in the US.

The Give Team motto is a central tenet of the New Image Youth Center:

No matter how little you have, you always have something to give.

Initially intended to encourage the students to help others in the community, it's also very personal to every member of The Give Team. When pushing through an intense workout, each team member is reminded when they feel beaten down, when they're tired, when they think they're at the end, they ALWAYS have more to give.

So give more. Always.
