Good Sports believes kids who play do better. They become more confident, make new friends, are more engaged in the classroom and decrease their risk of obesity and other health-related diseases. The problem? Increased pay-to-play costs and limited Physical Education budgets prevent kids in need from playing sports and being active. High equipment costs limit youth organizations’ ability to deliver the life-changing impact of sports and physical activity to the children they serve.
The good news is, there is a solution. Good Sports’ mission is to give all kids the lifelong benefits of sport and physical activity by providing brand-new equipment, apparel and footwear to those most in need. Since its first donation of 500 basketballs in 2003, Good Sports has delivered $22 million dollars' worth of equipment to give over four million kids across the country the chance to play!
Good Sports is thrilled to be an official charity of the 2018 Boston Marathon. Each runner on the Good Sports Marathon Team represents a Greater Boston community in need, and funds raised will further our impact on youth organizations in these neighborhoods – such as Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs, schools and more. Your support not only encourages our runners, but will give kids in need the chance to succeed on the court, on the field and in life. Thank you for teaming up with Good Sports to get all kids in the game!
