Kristi Yamaguchi is an Olympic figure skating champion and winner of Dancing With the Stars. Her motto “Always Dream” contributed to her success on and off the ice and is one that she aspires to instill in the hearts of children. One of her lasting legacies will be her Always Dream Foundation, founded in 1996, which has been an active fundraiser and supporter of children’s charities in the San Francisco Bay Area, including annual Christmas toy drives. Kristi currently lives in the San Francisco Area with her husband and their two young daughters. Visit her at www.alwaysdream.org.
