Still Zaching!!!!!

It’s been a year to the day, today, we lost our wonderful friend…and inspiration to many, one of our Hopkins kids, Zachary Lederer. Instead of being sad, which is absolutely the opposite of what Zach would have wanted…we strike the “Muscle Man” pose (#Zaching) and remember what an amazing guy he was, and honor the drive and inspiration he gave us all! I had the pleasure of sitting and talking with Zach’s Father John and Zach’s friend Rebecca…who we lovingly refer to as Becface.
