D3: Disability, Dream & Do
Dave Clark & Doug Cornfield

Disability, Dream and Do

Disability Dream & Do (D3) organizes sports events with professional teams for children and young adults with different challenges and special needs.

As an infant, Dave Clark contracted polio that stunted his growth and left him with virtually no use of his legs. But despite that, and perhaps because of it, he was driven to excel in physical competition against so-called able-bodied people.

The Dave Clark story is likely the greatest mostly unknown professional sports account of our time and teaches unforgettable life lessons that gives hope to anyone facing a challenge whether large or small.

Dave is currently a Public Speaker, Director of Disability Dream & Do (D3Day), and Inspiration to all.

Doug J. Cornfield is an author, speaker, former college athlete, and the director of Disability, Dream, and Do (D3Day) sports camps, created in partnership with Dave Clark. After winning a National Championship in the 800m at Taylor University, he transferred to the University of Georgia where he became a record-holding track and field athlete and a top contender in the SEC. After college, he became a senior financial adviser at Merrill Lynch before returning to his entrepreneurial roots to partner with Dave Clark to organize the D3Day events and their company Best Burn Enterprises, LLC. A Pound of Kindness is the first in a series of books by the Best Burn Enterprises team that will capture true stories of kindness and perseverance to empower and give hope to those with physical and intellectual limitations.
