MSD coach and teacher stood strong against the obstacles for his community

Gabe Stewart didn’t have long to prepare for Ninja Warrior. But you need to see his run.

Gabe Stewart is a coach and teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. He was there on February 14 when tragedy struck. After what his community endured, he wanted to do something to show the world how strong they were and lift the spirits of his friends and students.

So Gabe decided to take on the American Ninja Warrior Miami Qualifiers course. Veteran competitor JJ Woods jumped in as his trainer. Although Gabe was nervous and knew he hadn’t trained for long, he wanted to do this.

Watch the video above and try to hold back the tears as Gabe shows us all exactly what determination looks like.
