Wow! After this podcast episode, you will be inspired to go do something good for somebody! Kent Wellington is an attorney with Graydon Law by day, but what he has done with his ‘free time’ is inspiring. After his wife, Karen, passed away from cancer, Kent and his two kids, decided to launch the Karen Wellington Foundation. The foundation provides vacations, spa days, or other activities to women living with cancer and their families. Kent is also a co-founder of Saturday Hoops, a mentor program that uses basketball and life skill educational sessions to help underprivileged youth.
