Diana Nyad accomplished a lifelong dream she had attempted and failed four times previously. At the age of 64 she finally reached a goal she set in 1978 when she was just 28 years old. She learned a great deal on all of her prior attempts. Her mantra according to this article was “find a way”.

Like anyone who is successful, Diana had a team who helped her along the way: an operations chief, a navigator, a nutritionist, a team of “handlers”, medical professionals, and many, many more. She did not accomplish her dream without support or help.

This story reminded our staff of the way that we all work together with our volunteers as a team to help PEP’s overachieving underdogs to become successful businessmen, entrepreneurs, sons, brothers, husbands and fathers. TOGETHER with your support, we encourage our men to find a way to accomplish their dreams.

As a friend to PEP, you play a role in the success of every participant by cheering them on, sharing our story with others, volunteering and donating. Don’t ever underestimate the value of your support … TOGETHER we are making a difference every day, one life at a time.

Please watch this video and realize the power that you have to change the world.
