Randall takes his experience as an elite athlete to work with him as a coach with the Special Olympics. He specifically works with his athletes to eliminate barriers that inhibit their true potential, and incorporates a coaching style based specifically on the unique characteristics of the athlete. Randall is a firm believer in each athlete’s innate ability to accomplish any goal they set out to meet. “My favorite aspect of working with Special Olympics athletes is their incredible imagination to achieve and their belief in themselves – if we all had this self-esteem and determination there is no telling what social problems would be solved.”
In 2009, Randall co-founded Developmental Disabilities Sports Fund (DDSF), a 501(c)3 charitable organization that provides resources for athletic groups working with special needs adults and children. He currently serves as the Executive Director of DDSF.

He is an accredited Disaster Communications Worker with the Butte County Sheriff’s Communication Reserve. He has donated over 5 gallons of blood to local blood banks in recent years as well as recently being listed as a volunteer donor with the National Marrow Donor Program.

Randall's motto and mission is to make an increasingly positive impact and improve the quality of life for all Chico and Butte County residents. “I literally wake up in the morning and set out to outdo myself and my performance the previous day. In triathlons we call this type of continuous improvement a 'negative split'. I call it a positive split.”
