Q: Hi Max! What made you lace up your running shoes & join the Good Neighbors team?
I’m a member of the Net Project Club at Van Nuys High, and Good Neighbors collaborated with our club, introducing us to their cause and allowing us to sign up for the LA Big 5K. I personally joined because I love helping a good cause whenever possible.
Q: How’s your training going?
This will be my first race. I’ve been taking brisk jogs every now and then before I head off to school, and I’ve also been practicing my runs with a friend, Sarah, who is also running the LA Big 5K.
Q: What do you love to do in your free time?
I love working with computers, technology, and the like. I enjoy spending time with my friends, whether it be outdoors or otherwise.
Q: What’s your favorite subject in school?
JROTC (something many schools don’t offer). The Junior Reserves Officers’ Training Corps is a substitute for regular P.E. that also teaches today’s youth discipline and determination. It’s benefited me by boosting my self confidence and allowing me to meet great people (in turn, leading me to Good Neighbors.)
Q: What’s a fun fact about you that people might not know?
When I was in elementary school, I played six different instruments: guitar, violin, piano, flute, uke, and cello. I can only play guitar and piano somewhat now.
