When a firefighter buddy of his found out he had an extremely high cholesterol, Rip convinced his firehouse to switch to a Plant Strong diet the very next day. They all did it and saw amazing benefits. Through the magic of social media, Rip learned about our school and made his way here.
The kids loved Rip. As a former professional triathlete and firefighter, he had their attention. When he showed the kids how strong he is just on plant protein, they ate it up. He answered their questions, had some lunch with them, and then chatted with the kitchen staff, thanking them for the work they do every day.

And, our students love that Rip switched the "P.S." in our Public School title to Plant Strong. I've seen a lot of little Plant Strong muscles being shared around the school.
