Be The Best.

101 inspirations

Do you know what the total number of ‘Be The Best’ lacrosse sticks were ordered?

101.  Do you know how huge that is?  I thought if we would get 50 orders that would be amazing.

This was an incredible response and I’ll report back as we get the final figures on what that means to the Chris Friesen Memorial Award.  All I’m going to say at this stage, is that I think that Award is going to be the most sought after prize an SFU lacrosse athlete will be aiming for each year…and each winner will be challenged to change the world.

I spoke to someone this past weekend who had done some humanitarian work in an AIDS ravaged center in Africa.  The feeling of despair and hopelessness can seem overwhelming, until the realization of how helping ONE person will help ONE family that can change the lives of many over time.  What is the alternative?

So, when I talk about changing the world, I’m not talking about being the next Prime Minister or world icon.  I’m talking about changing one or two lives around you and then multiplying that affect over time.  We’ve already seen how Chris accomplished this in his short time on this earth.

101 stick orders?  Yes, but also 101 inspirations to Be The Best.
