#FollowFriday – Joe Botnick

Posted on Updated on

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. This 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.
