In second place is Matt, a pro snowboarder with an Olympic gold medal. Matt chooses Redmond, the former Navy Corpsman with a prosthetic leg, as his partner. Matt says Redmond seems like the kind of guy who won’t give up when the going gets tough. Good guess.

"Travis Manion Foundation has been fortunate to interact with many incredible individuals who have served our country throughout our years of operation. One individual in particular, Redmond Ramos, stands out in 2015 for his various accomplishments and his bright future"
