The North Face: Outdoor Exploration Ambassador – Ryan Hudson

From The North Face on Youtube:

A victim of severe poverty since birth, Ryan Hudson grew up living in and out of homeless shelters. At age 14 Ryan was introduced to snowboarding through Outdoor Outreach, a non-profit organization dedicated to using outdoor activities to empower at risk youth, and his life took a 180. Now competing as a semi pro athlete and serving as a brand ambassador for The North Face, Ryan’s story shares just how transformational the outdoors can be.

Produced by The North Face, Camp 4 Collective, and Snowbird Mountain Resort.
