For over 10 years, Coach Gavin has positively impacted hundreds of players and families in the Minnesota Soccer and Athletics Communities. He has touched many lives as a coach, first with Coerver Coaching Minnesota, but most predominantly with Dragon Soccer and Centennial Soccer Club. In addition to coaching, Gavin has also inspired and touched the lives of his family and countless friends.
In early 2013 however, after experiencing unexplained muscle loss and weakness, Gavin was sidelined when diagnosed at the MAYO Clinic with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). Countless tests later also revealed that he suffers from Lyme Disease and other related autoimmune disorders. While the disease has now taken Gavin’s speech and significantly impacted his ability to walk and move, it has NOT taken his spirit or his mind. Gavin, his wife Crisha and two young children, Katalina (5) and Caden (3) are determined to do everything in their power to fight the disease while at the same time doing everything they can to make each of life’s precious moments count.
To help defray Gavin’s enormous medical expenses as he transitions home from hospital care, PLEASE join us on April 25th for the Dragon Chase 5K & Pancake Breakfast. All proceeds go directly to Gavin and his family.
