#FollowFriday – Joe Botnick

Every once in a while you meet someone who reminds you that there are amazing people in this world. I am fortunate to know many great people. Yet, if someone were to ask me to name a person who exemplifies the term “good person” I would, without hesitation mention the name Joe Botnick.

Now, I’ve only know Joe for a couple of years. We met at a golf tournament and have maintained our friendship even though I’ve only seem him a few times since. Yet he is someone I feel comfortable talking to and asking for his opinion.

However, I don’t want to spend anymore time talking about me and Joe. you NEED to know about a charity golf tournament Joe organizes every year called Shawn Tompkins Memorial Golf Tournament.┬áThis annual golf tournament raises funds to benefit the Shawn Tompkins Foundation. For those who don’t know who Shawn Tompkins was, he was a mentor, coach, trainer and friend to many mixed martial arts fighters. When he passed (the same day I met Joe) he left a void in the MMA community in Canada and around the world.

If you’re on Twitter, consider following Joe at @RelentlessJoeB. And if you’re a golfer and/or a fan of MMA consider supporting a great cause.
