I am sharing today, the sad news of the passing of my nephew Ben Hall. Ben has been battling brain cancer over the last 4 years and it had just reached his brain stem and there was no more fight. Ben knew about fighting and working hard as he was a member of Purdue Crew while in College and had the privilege to be coached by my first coach, David W. Kucik. It was one of Ben’s last wishes to have a fund set up to help Purdue Crew and the link to make any sized donation is here. Please consider making a donation of $10 or more to help in Ben’s name.
