We all have aspirations. For the lucky ones, the path toward renown has already been established and role models have paved the way and set the example. For them, greatness is just a matter of defying the norm and demonstrating the will to win, a dogged desire, and a ruthless aggression in achieving a destiny of grandeur.
But what if there is only an established path for some, but not all? What if for some, there is no horizon, or, what if achievement is just an optical illusion, a cruel mirage that can never be attained? Even worse, what if for some, there is no opportunity to ever make greatness a reality?
Do their dreams become mission impossible?
For the ordinary, yes. The ordinary typically reverse course when the going gets too tough. The ordinary allow their dreams to fade away. The ordinary choose to fight a different fight. But at some point, a hero emerges. At some point, ordinary is overtaken by the extraordinary. At some point, it’s time to make our own opportunities, create a brand-new horizon, and rise together in body and in spirit!
The Grand Rapids Rise are the embodiment of that fierce spirit set to rise to new heights … and it’s not just the sport of women’s volleyball that will be taking the ride. We are blazing a new trail for all of those who have been left behind. New opportunities. New horizons. New expectations. You want to see a will to win and the dogged desire and ruthless aggression it takes to achieve what has never before been accomplished? Just watch us RISE!
