In September, I met with the owner of the martial arts school my son, Curt, had attended. I lost Curt in an accident last spring at age 22, and was exploring the possibility of setting up a scholarship fund in his memory. The school teaches so much more than self-defense — students receive life skills and learn how to set and achieve personal goals. The school made a huge difference for Curt, who benefited from positive male role models and built his self-esteem.
After the accident, [President of Reliv Asia-Pacific] Scott Montgomery called and asked if there was anything Reliv could do for me. I answered that Reliv had already done everything. You see, starting a Reliv business allowed me to stay home with Curt and spend every moment possible with my son as he grew up. There could be no greater gift.
At the martial arts school, we agreed that $1,500 would be a good place to start for the scholarship fund. That night Reliv announced August’s Top Ten Bonus earners on the Monday Night Call. I had finished 8th in the nation and earned a bonus of, you guessed it, $1,500! Building my Reliv business will allow me to continue to fund the scholarship so that others can benefit the way Curt did. Some things happen for a reason.
