For over 10 years, Coach Gavin has positively impacted hundreds of players and families in the Minnesota Soccer and Athletics Communities. He has touched many lives as a coach, first with Coerver Coaching Minnesota, but most predominantly with Dragon Soccer and Centennial Soccer Club. He has also coached numerous teams in the MYSA and the Minnesota State High School League, most recently the Champlin Park Boys.


In addition to coaching, Gavin has also inspired and touched the lives of his family and countless friends.


In early 2013 however, after experiencing unexplained muscle loss and weakness, Gavin was sidelined when diagnosed at the MAYO Clinic with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).  Countless tests later also revealed that he suffers from Lyme Disease and other related autoimmune disorders. 


While a devastating diagnosis, Gavin, his wife Crisha and two young children, Katalina (4) and Caden (2) are determined to do everything in their power to fight it while at the same time doing everything they can to make each of life’s precious moments count.


There's currently no cure for Gavin’s condition and nearly all medical treatments are experimental - therefore not covered by insurance - and come at a great out-of-pocket cost.  In an effort to help defray the ongoing medical costs you may donate directly to him here. All donations will go directly to Gavin and his family.

A 5K Run/Walk will also take place on Saturday April 19th at the Mermaid in Mounds View, MN.  If you want to particpate, register at www.dragonchase5kforgavin.com
