A Sponsor Story:
My decision to sponsor a child through the Stronger Together Foundation is about connecting. In particular, connecting a child with the sport he or she loves but is unable to participate in lessons, games, etc. due to financial constraints.
As a kindergarten teacher, I spent most of my years teaching in a school with a large percentage of English Language Learners from around the world. Many children entered the classroom with little or no English words to communicate and connect with other students.
But, on the playground when their hand or foot connected with a ball and they passed to another child connecting began. Sports became the connector. Additionally, as a parent, I continue to watch connections through sports impacting my child’s life for over 25 years. These connections create a multitude of lifelong bonds, provide endless personal growth experiences, and continue to open up and support options for on going connections with athletes of all ages.
I want to sponsor because I want to help keep children connecting through their love of sports and reaping the benefits of those connections.

We have two daughters who were fortunate enough to have good coaching available to them when they were young and we were fortunate enough to be able to pay for their early training and competitive athletic experiences. Not everyone can do this and we felt this was our way to help other families provide a worthwhile athletic development opportunity for their children.

Participating in organized youth sports programs with good coaches can help teach today’s youth life skills needed to be successful in their adult life. Self Confidence, teamwork, self-awareness, and time management are just a few of these essential skills needed to be successful adults. The Stronger Together Foundation will provide this opportunity to children who otherwise might not be able to participate.
