Passionate about passing on the torch, the team will assist with different aspects of organizing, fundraising, project mentoring, and more. We're here to help you create team spirit, excel in your projects, cultivate your best selves, and most of all, HAVE FUN!

He is most known for his catch phrase "LETS GOOOO!" If that doesn't make you want to compete, what would?!
