Chalmers’ involvement with FCA began when he attended one of the first sports camps in Estes Park, Colo. While at camp, he gave his life to the Lord and has since supported the ministry with his time, resources and vision. Greatly involved with FCA Wrestling, he volunteered and financially supported the ministry, and he served as the National Board of Trustees Chairman from 2010-2011.
Diagnosed with a rare form of cancer only a few years ago, Chalmers resolved to make the most of his opportunities and influence and initiated the re-launch of FCA New Mexico. He made the initial pledge to fund the position of State Director, served on the task force to help build awareness and momentum, and assisted with the search and hiring committee of the new position. Chalmers went to be with the Lord on Easter Sunday this spring. His life was spent helping others, and in his own words, “giving hand ups, not hand outs.”
