Storm Monroe became a chapter leader in 2021 and now serves as the Davidson Chapter President. He attended the Leadership Development Conference in 2021 and 2022 and was a draft pick presenter at the 2022 Young Investigator Draft. Storm is making sure the Wildcats football program is using their platform as student athletes to serve and inspire hope in the Rare Disease Community.

“My own battle with a rare condition led to my interest in being involved with Uplifting Athletes. I was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome when I was younger. I was basically paralyzed from the waist down and spent weeks in the hospital and months relearning to walk twice due to a relapse. Anybody can make a difference in another’s life, regardless of situation or status, all it takes is compassion, effort, and the will to do so.”

A series of long-term injuries has prevented Storm from making his collegiate debut.
