We asked our team why they were passionate about Sports & Athletics. Responses included:
As a member of the Professional Disc Golf Association and a certified official, I am a firm believer in sports for building community and inclusiveness. My circle of disc golf friends has been a tightly-knit network over the years and in my travels. There is something special about getting together with fellow discers who just want to throw and have a good time outside. Not only are you exercising and having fun, but you’re making friends for life.
Being involved in sports as a young person definitely defined who I was. I’m so thankful for the impact that athletics had in my life to develop discipline and self confidence. It’s imperative that these kinds of opportunities continue to be a big part in the nonprofit world for our young people today.
It’s a lifestyle choice. My family are sports fans, I have worked with professional sports teams and everyone I know is engaged in some sort of athletics for their enjoyment and health.
