Your Real Champion® – “The “Cliff” Diver“
Cliff Devries was a prodigious and focused college athlete on the fast track to the Olympics, but when he attempted more complicated dives, his progress was impaired by new onset weakness in his right shoulder. What a heartache to hear that the MRI revealed a six inch tumor in his spinal cord. This is a man who embodies humility. Listen to the remarkable story of this nationally ranked, award winning diving coach who is driven by his faith and gratitude to give “more” and inspire others to do the same.
Each week, we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community.
