RYDF Helps Alex Succeed On and Off the Court

Alejandro Cardona is a 25 year old professional racquetball player from Juarez, Mexico, with a distinguished junior career. Alex was an eleven-time Junior World Singles Champion and a five-time Junior Pan American Champion.  It seemed inevitable Alex would began a career as a professional racquetball player.

But for almost two years, Alex had to abandon his hopes of playing professionally due to high travel costs to tournaments. He and his family didn’t have the money to pursue his professional dream.  But through the creation of the World Racquetball Tour in 2012, sponsorship support from Gearbox, and the Reaching Your Dream Foundation, Alex has a second chance at reaching his dream.   And he’s making the most of it.

Professional racquetball now provides an opportunity for Alex to support his family back in Mexico.  With the winnings from his exceptional talent and RYDF and other support, Alex purchased and runs a food truck to help support himself and his family.  The Reaching Your Dream Foundation is proud to have supported Alex and wishes him continued success both on and off the court, as we do for all the players we support.
