Call Him Differently-Abled

Wheelchair basketball player Robert Gordon is the youngest player on a Men’s Wheelchair Basketball team in Tampa. In 2012, while attending Gibbs High School, he cofounded Real Victories Foundation with his teacher, Jennifer Volpe. He is currently finishing up his senior year at home. Robert’s goal is to compete as a Paralympian in the sport of wheelchair basketball and he is currently an alternate for the 2016 Paralympic team scheduled to play in Rio.

Robert’s desire is to imbue individuals with struggles like his in understanding that they can do anything. His wish is to let them know that even though they may not have the ability to walk, their life isn’t over. Robert inspires others in saying: “God put you on the earth to make a change. It may be playing a sport, or running for President. Strive for the best and make an impact! You’re not disabled. You’re


Robert describes a time when he was a freshman at Gibbs High School. “I was striving to take on the world, and they weren’t ready to take me on. Each day became more and more difficult until I looked inside myself and God enabled me to see that everybody is not going to understand my differences and imperfections.” In reflecting on times as a child growing up, Robert recounts: “I always saw able-bodied kids running and playing sports and I thought I wasn’t capable of doing any of it. I was unable to see beyond my chair.” However Robert’s vision was altered when his father took him to his first football game and they shared a love for the sport. Robert felt the love of athleticism. Yet he knew he would never be an NFL player. So he began a diligent search to find something for himself. “I found a program called Blaze Sports.” It offered wheelchair

basketball to kids in Tampa. I began attending on a weekly basis. The more I went, the more a passion for basketball developed within me. I began to feel this sport change me.” It was only a few short years later at the age of 15 that Robert was noticed by a Men’s Division 3 Wheelchair basketball team, the Tampa Bay Strong Dogs. Robert was asked to become a part of the team. “I accepted the challenge. When I moved up to play for this team, I was scared at first. The players noticed and they took me under their wing helping me develop skills, ‘showing me the ropes.’ The Strong Dogs aided me in becoming the athlete I am today. I played three years with this amazing team and celebrated 2nd place in the National Championship games in 2013.” Following that championship game, Robert went on to Colorado. It was here that Robert was to face one of his greatest challenges, the USA

Robbie Gordon Jr, number 14, with the other members of the Junior Men’s USA Paralympic Team.

Paralympic U23 Junior Team. Not only was the tryout going to be a force to overcome. This was the first time that Robert traveled cross country alone. Facing many fears and overcoming those obstacles proved successful. Robert placed 3 out of 32 wheelchair athletes at the Colorado tryouts and received an invitation to play on the team at the World Championship Games held in Adana, Turkey. Robert, now 18, continues to strive for excellence, setting personal goals and working hard to attain them. His family and friends surround him with support and are in awe of his ability to keep on moving forward, overturning obstacles and making strides that some may have thought impossible. Robert’s cofounder and former teacher, Jennifer Volpe, believes that “Robert is capable of doing anything HE sets his mind

to. I have told him to be YOU, the athlete, the uniquely challenged, the spiritually connected YOU!” In being this athlete, unique and spiritually connected individual Robert has been quite fortunate to acquaint himself with many people. His athleticism has been recognized by Top End Wheelchairs, which became Robert’s first sponsor. “Top End has provided me with the top of the line chair for sports. I have been able to use it to improve and streamline my moves on the court.” A second sponsor and strong supporter of Robert is Elevate Fitness LLC. Owner and trainer Jennifer Pierson works directly with Robert as his personal trainer and athletic council. “Jennifer’s energy and enthusiasm is contagious. She puts me through rigorous workouts that are designed to develop my strength, agility, and speed on the court. Her

dynamic personality and knowledge of kinesiology have put me at a different level. I am grateful to Jen and Elevate for supporting me in my training.” With a community of supporters, Robert Gordon Jr. is blessed. He is ready to showcase his talents for all as he sets his eyes on RIO 2016!! Meet athlete Robert, Jr. as he hosts Elevate Your Wheels, a charity event sponsored by Real Victories Foundation and Elevate Fitness on May 31st from 10 am to 5 pm. Activities at the event include a wheelchair fun run, basketball challenge, silent auction sponsored by Smith and Associates Real Estate, as well as live music with the event concluding with a concert in the park. For more information visit the Elevate St. Pete website: or call 727.345.7200.

Although Robbie Gordon (on the right, facing the camera) has just turned 18, he plays with adults much older on the Orlando Strong Dogs team.

CLUB SOCCER ROUNDUP The West Florida Flames U14 boys won the regular season title with a 7-0-2 regular season record, hugely impressive in one of the most stacked leagues in the nation. The team was led by Bryan Gilbert and Luis Quintero. The Flames held off the second place Weston SC when they edged them out 2-1 in mid January, giving the Flames an insurmountable four point lead off the second-place Weston team. With the regular season title in their pocket, they leave for the National Premier League finals in Greensboro, North Carolina while teams like Weston FC, Tampa Bay United and Boca United will stay at home. This will be coach Juan Garcia’s second trip to the NPL’s finals as last season he guided West Florida’s U16 team to the finals in Colorado, falling just short in the championship game with a 3-2 loss to CZ Elite. The U15-16 Chargers US Soccer Development Academy team

travelled to the lone star state in April to compete in the 35th anniversary of the Dr. Pepper Dallas Cup. The team stepped up an age group and competed in the U17 division that was comprised of 28 teams in seven brackets. The Chargers opened the tournament with a bang as they annihilated the Gold Coast Knights 8-zip. Up next, the Chargers outlasted a tough New Mexico team, Rio Rapids, 1-nil to improve to 2-0. In the final preliminary round game the Chargers fell prey to the

hometown Dallas Youth 97’s, with a tough 3-1 loss, leaving them as the two seed and a berth in the quarterfinals. In the quarter-finals, the Chargers matched up with another Texas team, Dallas El Pasco Premier, with a spot in the semi’s on the line. In a hard fought battle, the Chargers eked out a 2-1 victory sending the Premier on a short ride home and propelling the Chargers into the semi-finals against yet another Texas opponent, Dallas Youth 97 Premier. The road would end there for the Chargers as a late Dallas goal ended their quest for a title 1-0. Five members of the Oldsmar Soccer U18 Competitive Women’s team received the 2014 Joan Judd Higher Education Grant. Pictured left to right, Delaney Jardine, Katie Cernkovic, Katherine Patterson, Jessica Little and Laura Josephik. The Tampa Chargers U14 girls team finished the regular season with a record of 9 wins 1 loss and 2 ties, earning them the U14 age

MilPro Publications group championship for the 2013 -2014 season. Over the course of the season the team scored 45 goals (most in the age group) and allowed only 17 goals. The team’s last CDL loss was their opening game of the season on November 9, 2013. The team also advanced to the FYSA State Cup and will play in Plant City on May 3. The team is led by head Coach Brian Edwards and Assistant Coach Jim DeLisle. The Lakewood Ranch Chargers U19 boys took home both the CDL and NPL League Championships. Coach Roy Hill and Jason Peters led the team to the duel first place finishes. The U19 Charger Boys are a combination of U17, U18 and U19 players from Sarasota and Manatee County with some playing together for as long as 10 years. Oldsmar Soccer Coach Quattrocki took the U9 Girls Academy team to the finals of the Largo March Madness Soccer Shootout but the run to the championship ended there with a 2-0 loss to the CFL Celtics. Oldsmar opened the tournament

Next up, they outlasted the Clearwater Chargers 2-0 and wrapped up pool play by edging out the West Florida Premier, 1-nil. In the semi finals they struggled in a

Ask: “If you could do anything, what would you like to do?” Try and encourage your children to generate their own ideas for activities. They’re more apt to have fun if they thought it up on their own! Reinforcing children to use their imaginations will also help them develop a sense of resourcefulness and get them in the habit of making their own choices about how they will spend their time.


“Mom, I’m bored. There’s nothing to do.” If you’ve ever heard your child say that, then we have an adventure for you! “Bored” is never heard at Soul Adventures, an exciting summer camp for 5-14 year-olds.

I AM FOR THE CHILD Abused and Neglected Children Need Advocates

Become a Guardian ad Litem

Over 1,000 children in Pinellas County do not have a volunteer Guardian ad Litem. As a Guardian ad Litem, you advocate in court and in the child welfare system for abused, abandoned, or neglected children. The Guardian ad Litem visits the child every month, becomes familiar with the child’s case, and makes recommedations to the court to help ensure the child has a safe, caring, and stable home. No prior experience is necessary; you will be well trained and supported by an experienced supervisory and legal staff. Once trained, volunteers spend an average of ten hours a month. To attend an informational meeting, call Maria at 727.464.6528 or go to for more information.

I am YOU

I am for the Child whose name no one remembers. I am for the Child who has been abused or neglected. The Child who has had seven addresses in a year. I am a Child Advocate. I am a Guardian ad Litem Volunteer.

LOCAL BUSINESS LAUNCHES SPORTS EQUIPMENT FRANCHISE Joe Sciandra and Dave Beaudin, owners of 2nd Time Sports in Palm Harbor, a new and used sports equipment retail outlet are now offering 2nd Time Sports licensed francise oportunities.

to bring their gear in for trade or consignment.” Sixty days later, 2 garages full of new and used gear had been stockpiled. Clearly this was a successful proposition wanted by consumers!

Dave Beaudin recalls that from 2008 thru 2011, the average phone call and walk in conversation was “My son grew out of his skates and gear, will you buy or trade my stuff?” Being limited in space, there was never any room to have both NEW and USED equipment in the store. Seeing a shift in the market, with economic challenges facing families, Beaudin decided to do more research and ask his clients to provide their input. All roads led back to structuring a retail environment where the trading of gently used gear for NEW gear would be accepted. The next conversation with his managers and staff was, “Let’s ask our clients

In 2011, Sciandra and Beaudin, working in the hockey retail business in Tampa, decided to take a leap of faith and open the doors of their new and used retail establishment, 2nd Time Sports, to the public. The concept was warmly embraced by the Palm Harbor community. In fact, the interest in this unique concept was so profound that inquiries about how others could open a 2nd Time Sports in their neighborhood came in sooner and more frequently than Sciandra and Beaudin had anticipated. After much thought, they decided that the most effective way to bring their experience and concept to other communities was to

grow the business through licensing their new business model. The philosophy of 2nd Time Sports is to have a truly uncommon establishment where the experience is as essential as the product. At 2nd Time Sports, having the most extensive sports equipment selection is not enough. It is important that there is a broad spectrum of patrons, that the store is clean (the environment does not smell like a locker room), and the experience with the staff be pleasant. By combining a friendly environment with an exceptionally knowledgeable staff, 2nd Time Sports creates an atmosphere where patrons feel at home, and the get the service in a STOP, SHOP and SAVE store. If you are interested in owning and operating a 2nd Time Sports licensed location give then a call at 727-7840007.

Financial Literacy. Why should you care? Corporations, associations, organizations of all kinds, are recognizing the importance of promoting financial wellness both for the health of their organization and the future of their employees. Absenteeism, inattentiveness, irritability, reduced productivity... financial distress hurts your bottom line. How much time do you think employees spend each week dealing with personal financial issues when they should be working? A recent Virginia Tech study notes, 33% of workers report money worries often hamper job performance, 4 out of 5 workers report using work time to deal with financial distress and 34% of workers rate their financial stress as high to extreme. Helping employees cope with personal financial stress is key to a healthy organization. And employees need help. In fact, less than 1 in 3 Americans are “very confident” about their fiscal know-how. Financial stress is rated by workers as their #1 source of stress; concerns about personal finances are 5 times greater than those regarding health. “During these stressful times, HIFE is an incredible resource of financial education to the dislocated aerospace community. As a non-profit entity, their non-solicitous manner of delivery provides participants the education, motivation and tools to make life changing behavior. At Brevard Workforce we are proud to partner with them.” - Jan Conrad, Brevard Workforce The Heartland Institute of Financial Education is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to promote financial literacy across America. We are dedicated to empowering organizations and their people through financial education. And, the results have been amazing! Employees and private citizens who would never take the time to attend a course in financial education are joining their colleagues for class at the community center, office or plant after work. As a further incentive, spouses/partners are invited to join the class for no additional cost. Classes cover the practical every day financial concerns of working Americans with hands-on behavior enhancing exercises, factual explanations and straight forward applications. The Heartland

Institute of Financial Education provides an effective resource for organizations concerned about the high cost of employee financial distress. “Work-site classes are one of the most effective tools employers can use to improve employee financial wellness,” says Dr. E. Thomas Garman, Professor Emeritus, Virginia Tech University.

We believe employees want more control over their financial futures, and would like the confidence knowledge provides. As part of the growing financial literacy movement, the Heartland Institute is committed to providing competent, non-solicitous, college level financial education courses to America’s workforce. Our college sponsored classes vary from one to eight hour educational sessions, depending on the class curriculum. Classes are normally held at an employee’s place of business. Adult learners in a familiar surrounding, accompanied by familiar faces in a semi-formal setting are more apt to learn and apply real behavioral change. The Heartland Institute offers work-site financial education courses at a reduced cost (tuition) to your employees. All courses are taught through the nonprofit Heartland Institute by CFE Certified Financial Educators® in conjunction with the Heartland Consortium of Colleges & Universities which consists of well known, highly respected schools. Our instructors live and work in the local community and practice what they teach. Instructors are required to complete a study course, pass a comprehensive exam and complete continuing education to attain and “What a wonderful benefit the Financial Education Class has been for our employees. This class taught the value of preparing for every day events and for the future. I have had very positive feedback from the employees on these classes. And, they would like to have more of these type of classes taught at our facility.” - Patti Thompson, Bonfils Blood Center

maintain their certification. In addition, all instructors must sign a statement pledging ethical behavior, and all instructors are subject to the disciplinary oversight of the Heartland Institute. Many people tell us they feel unprepared to plan for their future. People want to take action, to be responsible, and we believe after attending our classes, they have the confidence to fulfill that desire. Unfortunately, for millions of Americans, time is running short. Financial Literacy is not another trendy catch phrase. It reflects a serious concern among government, private, and public organizations about disturbing trends in the fiscal behavior of average Americans. This movement for a financially literate society is based on the overriding belief that Americans can’t do better if they don’t know better. Knowing better won’t cure all ills, but it’s where we must begin. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has defined financial literacy as “The ability to understand financial choices, plan for the future, spend wisely, and manage the challenges that come with life events such as job loss, saving for retirement or a child’s education.” The Heartland Institute partners with colleges and universities throughout the United States to provide financial education courses to businesses and their employees, organizations and their members, and even civic and community groups who desire this type of purely educational coursework and information. These courses are taught by CFE Certified Financial Educators®, who have both instructional and practical business experience. Accredited Colleges and Universities are the critical link between the Heartland Institute of Financial Education, businesses and their employees and retirees. The Institute has created an opportunity for employees to receive excellent financial education at the worksite through nationally sponsored classes, as well as retirees through public classes.
