When 2013 Lightning World Champion David Starck went to Florida in March to compete in the Lightning Southern Circuit, he sought to do more than claim some silver. With his 20 year old nephew Patrick Waldron battling Hodgkin’s, he decided to dedicate the trip to him.
PatStrong is a name Patrick’s roommate at John Carroll University came up with, which Starck used on his spinnaker and dozens of shirts which were distributed to fellow competitors.
“The more people out there keeping Patrick in their thoughts, the better,” explained Starck.
