Ready for the best day of your life? Well, former Auburn basketball player and 1986 Auburn industrial engineering graduate Gary Godfrey certainly is.

Diagnosed with ALS in 2019, the only man Charles Barkley ever feared has spent the past three years preaching positivity with a rare perspective on living life to fullest. That’s what he’s doing every day with the help of his better half — and fellow 1986 Auburn industrial engineering alum — Carol. The latest example? Getting back on a bike in time for the annual Bo Bikes Bama charity event courtesy an Auburn Engineering senior design team that raced to build a custom ride for an Auburn Man who won’t be denied.

Listen to the Godfreys discuss their Auburn story, plus how they strive to make today their best day on the latest episode of the award-winning #GINNing Podcast below, or on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, iHeartRadio or wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts by searching #GINNing.
