Rylan Wins National Championship

Diagnosed with a chronic immune condition, 11-year-old Rylan has been matched with the UConn men’s basketball team since 2018. The Ellington, Connecticut native loves attending games with his dad, who is a former college athlete himself. Rylan received his Team IMPACT surprise on a birthday Zoom call, where the Huskies players joined to share the news and sing Happy Birthday.​

A Sweet 16 Surprise

Heading into the Sweet 16, three Division I Men’s Basketball teams are matched with Team IMPACT teammates. All three children received a surprise of a lifetime this week when they joined a call with their teammates and learned that Team IMPACT was sending them on an all-expense paid trip to the next round of the tournament. Rylan matched with University of Connecticut, Jace matched with University of Houston, and Brennon matched with University of Miami are settling into Las Vegas and Kansas City respectively, ready to support their team as they do at home.
