What does Shaping Kids’ Lives Through Sports mean to you?:
“A lot of valuable lessons can be learned from sports. Putting kids in a position to face adversity and overcome challenges in a supportive environment is very important. Working hard together as well as participating in something for the greater good not just themselves individually can go a long way for their future.”
