Don Drake: Fighting the Good Fight

| 1 Comment
I recently had the privilege of interviewing Don Drake of Victory Programs, a Boston-based non-profit dedicated to helping the homeless, those with HIV/HCV and people dealing with substance abuse issues.  Don discusses his former life as pro wrestler "DC Drake", what it was like wrestling at a time when fears about HIV transmission were rampant and also how it felt when several online wrestling websites erroneously posted the news of his death.

I found out that Don Drake is still very much alive- and that is something we should all be very thankful for because he's fighting the good fight. Read my interview with Don here.

Find out what the incredible Victory Programs is all about and follow them on Twitter at: @VictoryPrograms.

Positively Yours,
