Guided by his philosophy, ‘Find A Way,’ former running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears; cancer survivor; and ESPN analyst Merril Hoge will inspire you with his story of strength and perseverance in the face of adversity.

Hoge didn’t just dream about this goal. From a young age, he found a way and took action to overcome any obstacle and attain any goal. Concussions that prematurely ended his NFL career, cancer, chemo – nothing could stop him.
