Inner-City, Middle School Athletes Need Sports Equipment!

My students need soccer balls, footballs, basketballs and batons for after-school sports.

My Students

I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career....lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again...and that is why I succeed." -Michael Jordan My students want the chance to succeed...but they need equipment!

My students come from the inner city and most don't have access to the basic things that many people take for granted.

My students love sports and are eager to play all the time! I want to be able to support their passion and drive by providing them with the best, most equipped athletics department possible.

My Project

I am requesting soccer balls, basketballs, footballs and track + field equipment for my amazing student-athletes! Right now, my school only has enough equipment to support a few athletes at a time. I would love to be able to provide my student-athletes with enough equipment for the entire team so no one will be left sitting on the sidelines!

Your donations will go directly to really deserving student-athletes!

My students inspire me every day with their passion and drive. I would love to be able to give them something they will really benefit from and love. Please help me create the best athletic department for the best athletes I know!
