Retired NFL Linebacker David Vobora specializes in human performance training that also inspires and motivates his clients to higher levels of achievement and fulfillment in fulfillment to others.

As the owner of Performance Vault and founder of the non-profit Adaptive Training Foundation, David works with athletes of all types - professional, Olympic, collegiate, tactical forces, and especially those with severe disabilities, including many military veterans as well as victims of catastrophic injuries and illnesses.

David's groundbreaking work building physical, mental, emotional and spiritual strength in physically disabled clients at the Adaptive Training Foundation earned him recognition in 2016 in "Upstanders," an award winning mini documentary series produced by Starbucks that honors ordinary people doing extraordinary things to create positive change in their communities.

David's work at the Adaptive Training Foundation has attracted national and international media attention. He now works with some of the country's most well-known corporations as a keynote speaker, including Starbucks, Lockheed Martin, Anheuser-Busch, AT&T and TEDx.

David lives in Dallas, Texas with his wife, Sarah, and their two daughters.

This year's community service project will benefit the Humane Society of the Palouse (HSoP). Established in 1978, their mission is to ensure the humane treatment, welfare and safety of companion animals in Moscow and Latah County. HSoP strives to prevent cruelty to animals, to ensure companion animals are adopted by responsible and caring owners, to promote spaying/neutering, to educate the public regarding responsible pet ownership, and to minimize euthanasia.

HSoP is considered a volunteer organization by both the city of Moscow and Latah County. As such, this means that even though they do receive some funding from the local city and county, HSoP raises over 60% of their annual spending budget. Donations greatly reduce the financial strain experienced by HSoP and help to keep their furry guests as comfortable as possible during their stay, as well as to fund programs such as the spay and neuter assistance program and pets for vets.

Currently, HSoP is in need of both physical and monetary donations. Please view the List of Items Needed and plan to bring your donation(s) with you to this year's Annual Meeting! The furry residents of Moscow and Latah counties thank you!!
