I love coaches. That's why I've spent the last seven years helping build Up2Us Sports, an organization committed to the idea that every kid deserves a great coach. My work takes me all over the country, into communities where the idea of safe places to play isn't a given, where the chance to join a team isn't guaranteed. I've met the most incredible coaches- people who are giving back to their community by using their love of sports to create deep relationships with kids who face more challenges than any kid should face. I'm not exaggerating when I say they are my heroes. Two years ago, we began intentionally recruiting another group of heroes to serve as coaches- military veterans. It was an immediate success. We met veterans looking for ways to again be part of a team of people making a meaningful contribution- something that many found difficult to find in their post-military lives. We'd like to expand this program, Operation Coach, and we need your support. Can you help us raise $100k in 100 days?
