Douglas J. Moore
2751 NE Cleveland Street, Minneapolis, MN 55418


A personal auto accident in 1973 resulted in a brain injury, broken back and five-level disc herniation. My parents were told I would never walk, talk or see again. The opportunity to work through this has given me motivation to achieve physical, emotional and psychological fitness. My continuing passion is to share a message of hope and to mentor positive lifestyle habits.
