Shared Values — a cause and an action.
Mission: Team IMPACT matches children facing life-threatening and chronic illnesses with college athletic teams local to where they live.
About: We improve the quality of life for children facing life-threatening and chronic illnesses through the power of team.
We do this by matching these courageous kids with local college athletic teams. Team IMPACT children are drafted onto the team and become an official member of the team from Draft Day through to Graduation. The child joins the athletic team and the student athletes join the child's support team.
The child gains great strength, camaraderie and support and the student athletes are taught lessons about courage, resiliency and life perspective that they can't learn in a classroom.
Through a structured relationship management methodology, we establish and cultivate these relationships to ensure a successful experience for the families and teams involved.
