In 2017, Strive has awarded $14,700 in need-based financial aid to D.C. area student-athletes to attend Sports Challenge. A generous $7,000 grant from Children's Charity Foundation provides amazing support for so many of our DC athletes. However, we're looking to secure additional donations to bridge the gap on the remaining $7.5K.
Sports Challenge, celebrating its 20th year, is Strive's 9 day leadership academy for high school student-athletes from around the country, hosted at St. Andrew's School.
We passionately raise funds to ensure Sports Challenge is accessible to student athletes from all backgrounds. Since 2013, we've provided over $75,000 in need based aid to DC area student athletes, who, after attending Sports Challenge, returned as change agents in their communities. To ensure that all deserving student athletes have access to this incredible opportunity, we need your help. Please consider investing in these deserving student-athletes by making a donation today. Who is Strive? Strive: How You Lead Matters is an educational non-profit dedicated to spreading the power of character-driven leadership. We introduce student athletes and coaches to an intentional way of culture-building and leading – one rooted in self-awareness and empowered by a values-based, culture-driven community. We believe the practice of leadership is a winning strategy, with results seen on both the scoreboard and in life. Nowhere is this work more evident than at our annual summer leadership academy, Sports Challenge.
