Flyin Ryan


I am pleased to announce that I have been awarded a Flyin Ryan Adventure Scholarship in order to help fund my cross country road trip! While I never knew Ryan many of my friends did and I can relate to their enthusiasm and love for life and pursuing their passions and clearly his personality rubbed off on them a bit. I am so very proud to be a member of the Flyin Ryan Team. The goal of this scholarship is to EXPOSE adventurers to Ryan’s Principles for Living. INSPIREadventurers to craft their own set of core principles for living and to ACT on their core principles as the means through which they shape their attitude and engage in life.

Shortly after Ryan passed away, his family discovered on his computer a document Ryan had written labeled: “Ryan’s Core Principles for Living.”  Astonished by the simplicity and the reaction of those that read them, his family decided to share the principles with as many people as possible to inspire people to adopt their own principles for living. Below are the principles as written by Ryan…

Live every day, all day

Never stop exploring life

Never lose my adventuresome attitude

Be the best friend I can be

Be the best brother, son, uncle I can

Look out for others

Look out for myself

Look out for our surroundings

Play like I’m thirteen

Be self-sufficient

Don’t be afraid to ask for help

Work hard

Live easy

Live simply
