Chris Moore is used to helping kids. This father of four creates and fits prosthetic limbs for kids in a thriving practice in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Now, Chris is expanding his influence by using his strength, agility and stamina to benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children.
For the second year in a row, Chris is competing on NBC’s American Ninja Warrior, where hundreds of athletes tackle challenging obstacle courses hoping to win the $1 million grand prize. Chris, who works out every day beginning at 4 a.m. to prepare for the course, has pledged to donate all of his winnings to Shriners Hospitals for Children.
“Shriners Hospitals for Children is one of those beacons of light for children. They are not profit motivated, and that is unique. I have seen Shriners Hospitals come to the rescue of many kids who otherwise would not have gotten the care they needed to walk or just be a kid,” said Moore.
Chris, a former Navy medic, cannot tell us what is in store for him during this year’s show, but his qualifying round was filmed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and will air June 20. Last year, during season seven of the show, Chris made it all the way to the finals in Las Vegas, Nevada. Chris says whatever happens this year, he wants more people to know about the good work that Shriners Hospitals does.
To ensure that Shriners Hospitals – and ultimately kids – benefit, Chris has set up a fundraising page at americanninja4kids.com/ANW8.
Please help us support this Ninja hero who is working hard to overcome obstacles, just like our Shriners Hospitals for Children patients. Thank you Chris for putting our No Limits attitude to the test!
