Raul states: "I have I had the privilege to work with young athletes with disabilities in my capacity as a youth baseball coach, and have observed first hand, the value that sports can have in enriching and balancing the lives of a disabled athlete. The reason for my interest in serving as an 'associate advisor' is to help the organization achieve its mission and goals domestically and internationally and to help ensure that children with disabilities will have the same opportunities to compete and grow as athletes through sports, particularly synchronized swimming, as other children who don’t face the same life challenges."
