Youth Leader Story: Daymon from Chill Foundation

10/10/2017 12:01:39 PM
"Through his time in Chill’s program, Daymon has shown incredible resilience and always steps up to the challenge regardless of fear or inexperience. I believe his peers would agree that Daymon embodies Chill's themes of: patience, persistence, responsibility, courage, and pride. Additionally, while school has been an up and down battle with Daymon, his love of sports and extreme sports allows him to place greater emphasis on his studies because he now understands that you can't participate in one without the other. Last year, Daymon was able to participate in Chill’s snowboard program. Since then, he's been bitten by the Chill bug and when Chill announced this year's program Regent Park Skateboard program, he was over the moon. Chill provides an opportunity for Daymon to access to sports he would not normally have access too and an extremely impactful experience.
