Connor McGovern, Fargo native, was drafted into the NFL in 2016 and continues his career today as a center for the New York Jets. McGovern wanted to give back to the community that shaped him, so he partnered up with TNT fitness to give individuals of all abilities the opportunity to experience his ultimate passion – competition. The Fargo Able Games is the region’s first all-inclusive test of functional fitness, celebrating the abilities of all its competitors. They held their first annual Able Games this year in Downtown Fargo, establishing a tradition for years to come.
The Lamoureux twins are North Dakota natives who have been playing hockey since they were on the Peewee A Boys’ team in 2001. Since then, they have gone on the lead division A university teams, won three olympic championships, and become activists in gender equity within the sports industry. They recently published their first book, Dare to Make History, sharing their lifetime of experiences on and off the ice.
