VF Team Brandon to Help Patients Achieve Their Personal Best!
In 2017 the Brandon Hudgins will continue his partnership with the Vasculitis Foundation, professional long-distance runner, and GPA/Wegener’s patient, and leader of VF Team Brandon, in 2017.
VF Team Brandon was established in March 2016 by Brandon and the VF as he trained for the 2016 Summer Olympics. Although he didn’t make the Olympic Team, Brandon’s amazing spirit and positive outlook on life inspired 300+ team members to participate in weekly exercise challenges and awareness challenges to become more active, healthy and help spread Vasculitis Awareness.
In 2017, VF Team Brandon will help even more patients living with vasculitis and their family members achieve their own “Personal Bests”. Brandon’s personal experience as a patient and his educational background (BA in Physical Education Fitness and Wellness and an MS in Exercise Science: Strength and Conditioning from Appalachian State University) gives him a unique perspective and understanding on motivating patients living with chronic illnesses.
