It all started with an inspired notion. Cam Brown came up with a saying to help him stay motivated and overcome his small size while trying to make it to a college hockey team. Along with three other college hockey bound friends, they adopted their philosophy and spread it throughout their circles. One thing led to another and together they embarked on a journey that took them from printing and selling PPW wristbands in their garage to having the greatest professional hockey goalie in the world, Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins, ask to be a part of their movement. Their story is an inspiration, but more importantly their optimism is too. They believe that to help others succeed is the greatest accomplishment a person can achieve. Their mission rides on their strong belief that others will defy the odds and prove people wrong.

The greater good
