A car accident left Christian’s son Gavin with traumatic brain injuries and unable to walk or speak. After struggling to access recreational spaces with his son, he decided to build a comprehensive recreational facility where children of all abilities, and their caretakers, would feel at home. Christian, a high school math teacher, spearheaded a 7-year campaign to raise funds and build the RWJ Barnabas Health Field of Dreams in Toms River which opened in 2022.
