Play It Forward
Our Play It Forward program will be dedicated to collecting gently-used sporting equipment and apparel, refurbishing it and then donating it to other area child athletes in need.
The concept of Sports Save Lives comes from the movie "Pay it Forward". In this movie, 11 year old kids are challenged by their teacher to come up with a way to change the world. Trevor's Idea is simple, you must help three people, and they must "Pay it Forward" to three others, and they have to do it for three more, but it has to be something really big, something they can't do by themselves.
The idea that a youngster will not be able to compete in the sport he or she loves because they can’t afford to buy the necessary equipment is difficult for most children living in our communities to imagine.
Yet that is the reality for some local children whose families are struggling just to keep a roof over their heads.
So these athletes are doing what they can to make sure every youngster has the opportunity – and the equipment - to become an athlete in the sport of their dreams.Donating Equipment
Anyone interested in donating equipment to Play It Forward we can make arrangements for pick-up at your house. Once the equipment is refurbished and reconditioned, it will be donated to needy youngsters identified by a wide group of coaches, school administrators and directors of various athletic organizations in a number of different sports.
Thanks in advance for giving us a hand to less fortunate athletes play the sports they love!
