We're honored to partner with our friends, the Freeman Foundation, for our Sportsmanship lineup.
You may have heard of Travis Freeman from one of our faith-based films, 23 Blast. His story had such a profound effect on individuals nationwide that it eventually reached Hollywood! At 12 years old, Travis became sick with what they diagnosed as Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis. It had settled and taken hold, posing for nine days as nothing more than a severe headache. After the surgery that saved his life, Travis lost his eyesight.
After a year of adjusting to his new lifestyle, he joined the football team in the eighth-grade year as a center. Together, they won their conference championship. Travis continued to play all four years of high school.
Determined to continue his mission to spread his inspiring message, Travis created The Freeman Foundation. The Freeman Foundation promotes awareness and understanding of the needs and potential of individuals with disabilities. His foundation works with disabled individuals that need it the most. Today, Travis lives with his wife as an adjunct professor at the University of the Cumberlands. His nonprofit promotes the truth that "DISABILITY DOES NOT EQUAL INABILITY."
