9/8/2015: I wanted to take a minute and thank everyone for the great support and encouragement for my efforts on ANW and for this fundraiser this year. They didn't show my run in stage 1, but there were a lot of other talented competitors to show and I'd already had a lot of coverage.
FWIW: I cruised Piston Alley, one armed the Propellar jump, rode thru the Silk Slider, and nailed the Jumping Spider but crashed on the Sonic Curve 😞. So I'm out for this year.
That being said, it looks like WE raised a fair bit here for Shriners Hospitals.
That's what this has always been about and for that, I thank you.

I am a National Finalist on American Ninja Warrior Season 7. I am hoping to win $1,000,000.00 for Shriners Hospitals on American Ninja Warrior this year. I have pledged any and all winnings I may receive from the show to go directly to Shriners Hospital. American Ninja Warrior is a tough competition and a single misstep could end it all in the blink of an eye. Because nothing is certain in competition, it's very important to me that whether I win or lose, the kids need to win. To do this, I am trying to raise money for Shriners Hospital here as well.
Shriners Hospital has long been a pillar of expertise and generosity in pediatric medicine (since 1922). They do great things every day and are a national treasure.
To quote them directly:
"Shriners Hospitals for Children has a mission to:
- Provide the highest quality care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs within a compassionate, family-centered and collaborative care environment.
- Provide for the education of physicians and other healthcare professionals.
- Conduct research to discover new knowledge that improves the quality of care and quality of life of children and families.
This mission is carried out without regard to race, color, creed, sex or sect, disability, national origin or ability of a patient or family to pay."
It is my belief that despite the efforts of our government to improve health care for children, the need for Shriners Hospitals will only increase each year. We have seen major changes in health care in the last few years. Many of these changes have benefited special needs children, but there have been some down sides too. One issue of note that I see in my practice is the trend of higher and higher deductibles working families must endure. I see many families that make too much for medicaid, but not enough to ease the struggle with their deductible when their child has an emergency. When it comes to pediatriac medicine, economic consideration should never be a deciding factor. Shriners Hospitals is there for these kids too, providing amazing care AND protecting the family from economic ruin.
Please help me support them, as they continue to support us all.
