Our unique multiyear program signs children onto college athletic teams across the country, and based on a clinical model, ensures each has the personalized game plan they need to win – effectively building confidence and independence. Team IMPACT guides a symbiotic relationship between teams and children facing life-altering diagnoses and chronic illness focused on socialization, empowerment, and resilience.

GIVE WHAT YOU CAN. TAKE PART IN SOMETHING BIG.

With your help, we harness the power of team to build long-lasting relationships that deliver little doses of hope and joy in the form of high-fives and handshakes. Your donation can make a huge impact.

DONATE

The solidarity of a group provides the strongest protection against despair and the strongest antidote to traumatic experience. Trauma isolates; the group re-creates a sense of belonging.
