BENEFITING: CARING HANDS HOSPICE INC
The impact of your donation woul mean the world to children who are often forgotten. The bigger areas have the assistance of larger companies with sponsors and the ability to qualify for grants. Your donation will make sure a kid will get to play, as well as have transportation to practices and games. The statistics tell you all you need to know about the advantages of participating in athletics. “Kids who participate in sports attend school more, are more community and civic minded, get in less trouble, and tend to be more successful in the workplace. They have done studies from corporate leaders in the country: The number who made honor role was less than 20% but those who played sports was 70% – 80%.” Young athletes learn to work together, acquire leadership skills, get a sense of discipline and learn communication skills. All of these things are keys to success in the workplace. Ensure kids get all these benefits by staying in sports. To understand why children and teens stay in sports in rural areas, you have to understand why they drop out. The Number One reason: Money and availability of community funds to support programs. Our coaches focus more on skill-building and on having fun than on winning. Sports helps them not only build relationships, but it helps them grow up more confident. Children shoul not ever have to worry about not being able to afford tp "play".
