A few weeks ago, Austin Simply Fit hosted our 8th birthday celebration, a Crawfish Boil, and Olympic fundraiser for Coach Darryl. For those who don’t know, Darryl is an Olympic hopeful currently training for the 2022 Olympics in Skeleton, and he is quite the chef. It was an awesome afternoon where Darrly, himself, dazzled the community with his Cajun cooking skills and and amazing crawfish feast! You laughter and support continues to bring joy to our hearts. We are so grateful for this day, for the many talents of Coach Darryl and his willingness to feed us, and also for the love and support the ASF community continues to demonstrate. Y’all make dreams come true!
Check out photos from the event below, and here’s a note to all of you from Coach Darryl:
I’m super humbled by all the support that I received from the ASF Community, both in the form of well wishes and in finances. This Olympic dream represents so much more to me than just trying for a gold medal. It means that I get to serve as a athletic representative of my country and as a role model to youth and people of all generations to not allow fear to halt a pursuit of an ambitious dream. All of the support I received on April 14th is a huge part of the watering of a seed that was planted some 10 years ago and will eventually flourish into a tree that bears a good fruit for the many generations to follow. Thank you so much! ~ Darryl Payne, Jr.
