I am Boston Marathon Bound!!
On Monday, April 15, 2019 I am participating in the 123rd annual Boston Marathon, running for Team Good Sports. I'm asking for your support of their inspiring mission. Although it will be a challenge, I will be especially motivated knowing that it will benefit such a worthy cause.
Good Sports believes kids who play do better. They become more confident, make new friends, are more engaged in the classroom and decrease their risk of obesity and other health-related diseases. The problem? Increased pay-to-play costs and limited Physical Education budgets prevent kids in need from playing sports and being active. High equipment costs limit youth organizations’ ability to deliver the life-changing impact of sports and physical activity to the children they serve.
The good news is, there is a solution. Good Sports’ mission is to give all kids the lifelong benefits of sport and physical activity by providing brand-new equipment, apparel and footwear to those most in need. Since its first donation of 500 basketballs in 2003, Good Sports has delivered $22 million dollars' worth of equipment to over four million kids across the country.
All equipment provided to the children is brand new and equipment is expensive! Your support will help Good Sports give more kids in need the chance to play! For example:
$35 = Good Sports can provide a baseball or softball glove to a kid in need
$100 = Good Sports can equip a kid for soccer (uniform, cleats, shin guards, ball)
$250 = Good Sports can support a school’s entire Physical Education program with volleyballs, footballs, basketballs, soccer balls and more!
$300 = Good Sports can provide track spikes to five kids in need
$500 = Good Sports can outfit an entire floor hockey program with hockey sticks, goals, goalie padding and more!
It's easy to have an impact on this important mission. You can give a tax deductible donation by clicking “Donate Now” on the right side at the top of this page. Every contribution counts and there will be so many children who are grateful for your donation. Thank you for teaming up with me and the Good Sports organization to get all kids in the game!
