Ross Szabo: LA FEST Uses Soccer to Bring Communities Together
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
It may seem unimaginable to witness an event that brings together HIV and AIDS education in Africa, bone marrow transplants, celebrities and soccer for people of all ages. That event took place, however, Sunday at LAFEST at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. LAFEST co-founders and soccer enthusiasts Dylan Leiner and Jeffrey Saunders hosted the event alongside sports-industry power couple Mia Hamm and Nomar Garciaparra and Grassroot Soccer Co-Founder Ethan Zohn to raise money for bone marrow and HIV awareness charities. Zohn has a way of making the impossible become possible. The winner of Survivor Africa and recipient of two successful stem cell transplants for Hodgkins Lymphoma said, "Personally it's a combination of everything that's important in my life. Soccer, entertainment, celebrity and saving lives. Nothing like this has ever happened in Los Angeles. It's a full day of soccer to benefit two charities that mean the world to me. It's literally a dream come true. We ...

Jonah Platt: The Greatest Show in the History of Television
Huffington Post - about 4 years
What if I told you there was a show on TV that gave you an up-close and personal view into the real essence of the human soul? A show that strips away the trappings of everyday life, the walls and weapons and words we hide behind, and exposes our true strengths, weaknesses and core identities on a primitively human level. Sounds pretty cool, right? What if I told you this show holds a magnifying glass up to all of our most admirable qualities -- bravery, intelligence, compassion, perseverance -- as well as our most pitiable -- fear, greed, ignorance, stupidity? That this is a show where race, age, gender, sexual orientation, wealth, and religion play no part in determining individual success on any level? Where strength refers to your inner spirit and mental toughness, as well as your physical body. Where those with patience, loyalty, forthrightness, insightfulness, and courage are rewarded, and those possessed by selfishness, deceit, arrogance, and intolerance are doom ...

Jay Scott: Perspiration With a Purpose
Huffington Post Sports - almost 5 years
Anyone who knows me knows that I am huge sports fan. Basketball has always been my favorite, whether it's cheering on the UCONN Huskies, heading to an NBA game, or coaching my son's team, the sport, and the ability of those who play it, has always enthralled me. I have often wondered what drives athletes, other than pure ability, to make that shot at the buzzer or go the extra distance. Sure, we can say that professional athletes are paid, but what about those of us who are in it for something else altogether? For me, I found the answer a few years ago when I decided to spend less time on the basketball court and instead challenge myself to running marathons. Among the reasons for this was the fact that I had recently suffered a catastrophic knee injury and my doctors told me to give up sports. So in my mind, I thought marathons seemed like such a great way to prove to them (and everyone else!) that I could still be an athlete. I was reminded of this answer last week when I h ...

For his combined humanitarian efforts to spread HIV education throughout Africa via soccer teams for youth and young adults, Zohn received the Courage of Conscience Award from The Peace Abbey in Sherborn, Massachusetts. As part of the Boran tribe, Zohn did not become an immediate target in the game; he was seen as a strong player who could potentially help to win many tribal immunities. When his tribe lost two back-to-back immunity challenges, he joined the majority to vote off Diane Ogden and Jessie Camacho in Episodes One and Two. Over the next few days, Ethan would form a long-term alliance with Lex Van den Berghe and Tom Buchanan from his Boran tribe. But a twist in Episode Five saw both of Zohn's alliance members switch from Boran to the Samburu tribe, leaving Ethan alone with fellow Boran members Kim Johnson, Kelly Goldsmith, and Clarence Black. Two of the new Boran members from the Samburu tribe, Teresa Cooper and Frank Garrison, had an old misunderstanding with another former Samburu member, Silas Gaither. So, by consensus, Zohn's tribe agreed to throw the immunity challenge in order to vote out the unpopular Gaither. Both of Zohn's alliance members Buchanan and Van den Berghe remained safe on the Samburu tribe, carrying all three into the merge.
