Breeding quality ball pythons without compromise
Zach got his first pair of running legs last year.
Meet my little Buddy, Zach
He is my inspiration for participating in the San Diego Triathlon and creating awareness for Challenged Athletes Foundation every year.
Zach was born with a rare syndrome called TAR syndrome where he developed short arms and non functioning legs. Zach's legs were amputated at 18 months and soon after was fitted for his first set of prosthetics.
Zach's mom, Lauren and I worked together at Long Beach Memorial ER. She introduced me to the organization back in 2015 when their family first got involved with the foundation. As a tri-athlete, sports have been a big part of my life growing up. It just made sense to get involved with an organization that provides opportunities for individuals with physical challenges to find success in life through sports , community and mentorship.
This is my forth year participating in the event and the 2nd Annual Team Zach/CAF Raffle and Auction.
Here's a few of the 25 animals donated so far...
