BENEFITING: Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club
EVENT DATE: Jun 11, 2017
I am excited to participate in the 2017 Wisconsin Ironman 70.3 on Sunday June 11 where all proceeds raised will benefit the Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club (NBGC). Sports have played an important role in my life that it is an honor to raise money for an organization that values the importance of teamwork, sportmanship, and leadership development. Actually, NBGC has been a safe haven for children since 1931. The NBGC's mission is to enhance the well-being and develop the potential of its members, their families and community. NBGC does not care about your gender, your age, your height, your weight, your ethnic background...because "everyone plays." All children that participate in athletics learn the fundamentals of sports in a non-competitive, nurturing atmosphere. This is where their growing begins and a solid foundation is formed during their early developmental years. Then, these same youth advance in the Club's Leadership Program. A program that enables teenagers the opportunity to supervise children, appropriate oversight of equipment/supplies, professional conduct toward youth and parents, safety precautions and procedures, "scorekeeping" of athletic events, community service, and much more! Teens demonstrating exceptional performance over time are rewarded with increasing responsiblity, such as a promotion to a game umpire/referee, league director, leader of a specific age group, or NBGC staff member. This system not only benefits individual NBGC members, but also has a positive ripple effect on their families and their community. If you don't believe me, just ask the thousands of NBGC alumni whose lives have been impacted over the past 85 years!
