“When given an opportunity to live a life we love, we should transfer that love in the form of giving back”
– Kasey Hudson
When there is so much to love about sports, it’s safe to say the comradery is one of the biggest appreciators. To see all waves of people come together with passion and joy. Sports teaches us that we are stronger together, that we are all a team regardless of our backgrounds, and that together we have the ability to make great strides.
This is a platform to honor the change we can make in our communities, that will resound through the nation.
Many athletes and small business are the pillar and faces of foundations, charities, or groups that want to make a difference. This will be a platform to voice the difference they make, foundations they support, and/or groups dear to their heart, so you have an opportunity to support alongside them!
What’s life with passion and compassion? Below you’ll find each athlete by team and business by association. Thank you for joining to make a difference and be a community hero!
