Shea Hillenbrand's Against All Odds Foundation (AAO) believes in challenging the status quo. The way we challenge the status quo is by providing youth with with mind stimulating physical activities that positively change their state of mind, connect youth with their true story, and provide strategies to assist in formulating a massive action plan (MAP) ensuring a breakthrough in their lives. A MAP goes beyond simple goal setting. Every step of the way, AAO will help change the emotional meaning behind these activities, in return, will form a stronger link back to original dreams and visions making it more likely to succeed. AAO inspires youth to make positive lasting changes in their lives. Ultimately, this is what defines a one's life and the person he/she becomes.We just happen to have great programs.
"By the grace of God, I have experienced and accomplished my two childhood dreams of becoming a 2-time All-Star in the Major Leagues and owning a zoo. The blessings I have received surpassed my greatest expectations. One thing I remember doing as a child, more so then anything else, was DREAM BIG. I pursued my dreams relentlessly with extreme hard work and determination. While I had a great support system around me, especially my amazing Father and Mother, I felt deep inside me that I could accomplish anything I set my mind to. With my Father being the best role model I could ever ask for, I have a new set of dreams and visions resinating deep within my soul to be THE VOICE for the beautiful children in our communities across North America. I am a firm believer that all things are possible for he who believes."
