Hello! I’m Jon Kessel. I participated in the 2005 Summer Deaflympics with the US Deaf Wrestling team. Looking back, it was the best experience! The wrestling team was like family. Today, even though we don’t keep in touch regularly, we are still very connected.
One thing I wanted to share about why fundraising is very important. Athletes don’t want to worry about raising funds, but instead focus on their physical trainings and improving their mental preparation to help them bring home the GOLD to USA!
