Introduction  Geoffrey Richards works as the head of U.S. special situations and restructuring at Canaccord Genuity in New York and Chicago. Outside of work, Geoffrey Richards has contributed time and resources to a number of charities, including Make-A-Wish Foundation and The Hill School.

About the 2014 Winter Olympics  The 2014 Winter Olympics have come and gone, but the spirit of international camaraderie and competition lives on through the heartwarming narratives and triumphs of the various athletes. Kaitlyn Lyle did not compete in the 2014 Sochi games, but she is a shining example of how the Olympics represent much more than sports. Diagnosed with bone cancer at 15, she spent 13 months in the hospital, including all of February 2010 when the 2010 Vancouver Olympics dominated daytime television. She desperately wished to attend the games in 2014, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted that wish and sent Kaitlyn and her family to Sochi.

Conclusion  The family enjoyed many events along with two other Make-A-Wish participants. The men’s half-pipe competition again displayed how brightly the human spirit can shine. After hearing about the three Make- A-Wish audience members, two-time gold medalist Shaun White leapt a barricade and personally thanked the children for coming to the games. He also presented all three kids with snowboards he used during the 2014 competition.
