I had no idea when I offered to help photograph this event 5 years ago how emotionally invested I would become in this cause. As a result of being touched by just one sweet soul, Ryan Hidinger, I have in turn made countless new friends. This sea of people – these are people with beautiful hearts who are kind to their core, compassionate, and generous beyond words. Every year at Team Hidi I connect with old and new friends, share hugs, cry a little, and try to capture the emotion in the room which I feel blessed to have experienced five times now. It's truly a sight, ya'll. In light of all that is going on in the world, Team Hidi takes it all away, even if just for a day. So honored to be a part of something so magnificent.
