On this episode of “We Run This,” we’re talking to actor and athlete, Aaron Schwartz.

Aaron Schwartz probably looks familiar to people of a certain age because, at one point in the 1990s, Aaron made a career out of playing the lovable, chubby kid in blockbuster movies like The Mighty Ducks and Heavyweights, and on TV shows like The Adventures of Pete & Pete.

Aaron is now using his personal experiences to help motivate others who might struggle with some of the issues he did as a kid.
