The #DStrong movement has taken the world by storm, leading fighters and fans to rally behind the cause.
Dorian Murray’s story has inspired thousands. Everyone from Rob Gronkowski to Foxwoods Casino to the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn have shown their support for this amazing little boy and his unwillingness to let a bad situation keep him down.
Throughout the adversity, Dorian continues to face his problems with a smile. And that’s a lesson that we can all learn from. Check out the pictures (which continue to pour in from all corners of the globe) and help support the cause by sending your love to the Praying for Dorian facebook page.
But first, a message from CES Matchmaker and Director of Operations, Pat Sullivan, who was instrumental in making Dorian’s wish come true:
CES is not just a MMA promotion.
We believe we are a team. We are a family.
It’s not cliché, it is the truth, and when someone on our team hurts, we all need to rally together. There has never been a better example than this.
To Dorian: We at Team CES are supporting you and your fight, and we are all better people from your inspiration. We are #DStrong, and anytime one of us steps in the cage, or in the ring, you are our motivation. Thank you for teaching us what a true fighter is.
The MMA community is a special one, and together, we all stand next to you champ. We will continue to fight because of how you have shown us to live!
Keep those hands up D, we have more rounds to go!
Any other fighters who want to join the movement, send me your #DStrong picture and we’ll add it to the album to show our champion Dorian we are ALL in his corner!
Thanks to Dorian Murray and his amazing message, we are all #DStrong.
