Don Drake: Fighting the Good Fight

January 3, 2013

I recently had the privilege of interviewing Don Drake of Victory Programs, a Boston-based non-profit dedicated to helping the homeless, those with HIV/HCV and people dealing with substance abuse issues.  Don discusses his former life as pro wrestler “DC Drake”, what it was like wrestling at a time when fears about HIV transmission were rampant and also how it felt when several online wrestling websites erroneously posted the news of his death.

I found out that Don Drake is still very much alive- and that is something we should all be very thankful for because he’s fighting the good fight. Read my interview with Don here.

Positively Yours,
