More Than Me Team: Foundation & Creation
More Than Me was essentially created from the depths of a close group of friends from the central Massachusetts area back in the summer of 2012. Tyler has always been surrounded by a great supporting cast, but also surrounded by older friends/athletes because of his older brother Kyle Beede. That supporting cast included guys such as Bill McGuirk, Nick Haag, Craig Bellemare, Zack Rafferty, Mike Turco, Pat McGuirk, Pat Trainor and Joe Walsh. This group would become, and continue to be, a pivotal team in starting More Than Me from the ground up in Auburn, MA. This group remains the backbone of More Than Me, and though we stretch our impact across the world, the heart of the foundation resides in that small town where it all began.
From their evolution as a group, growing into a selfless support system for each other, it was easily recognizable that each member of the group was about more than themselves. That was the moment More Than Me came to fruition and became what it still is today, representing more than yourself, and the community that you come from.
Co-Founder Nick Haag is the epitome of what is means to be More Than Me. His daily lifestyle, attitude and actions constantly reflect our mission and he's one of the biggest reasons we are able to motivate, inspire and transform the lives of kids in the Massachusetts communities.
Nick is a professional football player, currently playing in Spokane WA, approaching his second season there. Follow him on the field and you'll understand that he's a pillar for that teams success and pillar for our success in the communities as well!
