Jim Thorpe – Rewire Hero of the Week

They just keep coming. But that’s what keeps me going.

Jim Thorpe

Jim Thorpe is considered one of the most all-round athletes of modern sports, competing in the Olympics and playing professional football, baseball and basketball. Thorpe was a member of the Sac and Fox Nation and was the first indigenous American to win a gold medal, winning two in the 1912 Olympics in the pentathlon and decathlon.

If not amazing enough, just before he was due to compete, Thorpe’s shoes were stolen and so he found two mismatched shoes (including one from the trash can) and wore them to compete and win the gold medal! Thorpe teaches us to not look for excuses, but instead look for solutions. Never let an obstacle get in your way, instead find a way around it.

Thorpe also competed in Major League Baseball, playing for the New York Giants, Cincinnati Reds, and Boston Braves. He also played professional football and was the first president of the APFA (later NFL). One of the football teams that he played for was the Canton Bulldogs, before his arrival they attracted crowds of 1,200 people but, due to Thorpe’s popularity, 8,000 people turned up to his debut game. Thorpe played 52 NFL games for 6 teams and was a part of the National Football League 50th Anniversary All-Time Team.

Thorpe succeeded at a time when there was severe racial inequality in America, and as a indigenous person he was a victim of this racism. Thorpe teaches us to never let anything get in the way of success, and that is why he is our Rewire Hero of the Week!

“Climb your own mountain.”

Fergus Crawley

As a survivor of a suicide attempt in 2016, Fergus has worked tirelessly to prevent more men making the same mistake that he did.

Fergus epitomises mental toughness, doing crazy challenges to raise money and awareness for Men’s Health. Since 2016 he’s raised well over £50,000 for Movember. This year Fergus’s challenge was ‘Project Vertical’ in which he and @johnathanpain climbed 16.5 miles of elevation over 11 days. They did this by scaling Ben Nevis 20 times, covering over 205 miles of total distance. This is an absolutely brutal physical feat designed to represent what, unfortunately, thousands of men suffer from in silence every single day.

Fergus Crawley is our Rewire Hero of the week!
