Rob was matched with his Little Brother, Daylon, more than ten years ago. Back then, Daylon says with a smile, Rob could easily beat him in basketball, their favorite pastime. That, and many other things, have changed now that Daylon is age 19 and getting ready to start college.
With encouragement and guidance from Rob, Daylon has grown into a leader and role model with a passion for speaking out about the impact of gun violence. After losing three close friends to gun violence, he had the confidence to speak in front of city council and has even created a nonprofit to help keep kids safe and off the streets.
“At his high school graduation, it was like everyone in his family was getting to go to college because they were so excited for him. It’s truly an achievement for him,” says Rob proudly.
