Good news: frisbee is cool again.

While most might have played frisbee once or twice, the advanced version of frisbee-- disc golf-- offers extra challenges for players.

Disc golf applies the same elements of traditional golf, where players try to land into holes in the least amount of turns.

“I can’t explain how they came to me believing there was nothing worthy in their life, that they had no reason to live, that life had become so unmanageable that they didn’t care anymore,” he said. “To see them become someone who says ‘I have a meaning, I have a will to live, and I have a purpose on this earth.’ That’s a miracle to me, that’s rewarding. To me, that makes it worth it.”
