Markus McFolling, CEO and Founder of Reach1, is a former professional football player turned business owner with a passion to share his story with the world. From Seaside, California, Markus pursued his dreams of playing football until a career-ending injury led to a battle with opioid addiction. After many years and being fully delivered from addiction, he now has a passion to share his story in hopes that lives will be transformed.

Markus has since launched a youth movement called Reach1 — an acronym that stands for Reconciling Every Abandoned Child Home. He has many years of experience working with troubled youth and men in Ohio and, with Reach1, has become an influential public speaker traveling throughout the country to share his message of hope in schools, churches, conferences and detox centers where he focuses heavily on perseverance and value. He also specializes in covering topics including identity, purpose, and anti-bullying.

Markus views his experience with addiction as a tool that will only further his work, and he desires to give back to those in need of support throughout their personal journeys and to inspire youth to realize their worth and purpose from a young age. Markus currently resides in Canton, Ohio with his wife Chelsea and their two daughters, Averie and Dakota.
