Sports ETA is feeling the holiday spirit and we hope our members are too as we start to raise money for our Sports Legacy Fund. What better way to celebrate #GivingTuesday, than by giving to kids in need?
Each year, Sports ETA awards a grant to a non-profit organization that provides at-risk youth, veterans, or physically or intellectually disabled individuals opportunities to participate in sport. To date, Sports ETA and our members have donated more than $150,000 in grants to organizations that leave a legacy in the lives of the athletes who participate in their programs.
For 2020, we are pleased to announce our beneficiary KC Blind All-Stars Foundation. This amazing group helps support the needs and dreams of blind and visually impaired youth at the Kansas State School for the Blind and the educators who believe in them.
The KC Blind All-Stars Foundation will use the Sports Legacy Fund grant to build the school a new, handicapped-accessible playground on the school’s campus. The existing playground equipment is a 30-year-old, non-handicapped accessible metal swing set and not usable for these children. With the Sports Legacy Fund, that can all change for this school.
We encourage our Sports ETA members to learn more about KC Blind All-Stars Foundation and how you can help them through the Sports Legacy Fund. Please consider donating to our silent auction, purchasing raffle tickets, or supporting through monetary funds as you register for the Symposium or when you renew your membership online. Those going to the 2020 Symposium in Kansas City will also have a chance to purchase raffle tickets and bid on auction items.
We here at Sports ETA thank you in advance for your support!
