DRAFT A CHILD TODAY.

WE PUT A CHILD ON YOUR TEAM.
YOU GAIN PERSPECTIVE.

Building character and inspiring college teams to overcome anything.

Student athletes face challenges every day—expected to compete and perform in both sports and school. In many instances, they grow up in an athletic environment whose structure and built-in friendships won’t be part of their future after college. To prepare them to win in life after sports, these student athletes need the perspective and leadership skills that guide them after graduation. Team IMPACT makes it easy for student athletes to see life beyond the scoreboard by connecting them with sick children who will help them gain perspective and forge life-changing relationships. Our unique approach matches student athletes with children facing serious and chronic illness in order to foster a real-world understanding of adversity and diversity. We do all the programming, but your team could be the next to make an IMPACT.
