When asked the question, “Why Team IMPACT?” Danielle said:
Sports have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. At Team IMPACT, I have the opportunity to bring together the power of sports and teamwork while creating partnerships with individuals that truly want to make a difference in the world. There is nothing greater than waking up every morning knowing I have the opportunity to change the lives of children, families and college athletes.
