Swim! Bike! Run! Sport Kids: Title Sponsor of Racing Underground for the 2018-2019 Season!
Our Mission: To provide assistance, hope, and love to kids and families around the world, regardless of faith or ethnicity.
2018-2019 Goals from Triathletes: To build more playgrounds in Iraq and Syria, and to provide basic sports equipment to more kids around the world.
In conjunction with foreign nationals, international aid workers and various non-profit organizations and NGOs, Sport Kids provides funding and support for sports equipment, humanitarian aid and educational assistance to some of the world's most overlooked, impoverished orphans, kids, and families.
Sport Kids helps encourage kids and families around the world, using sports and recreation to help heal all sorts of trauma and abuse, to build friendships and to foster community. It's a simple, high-impact goal, with massive potential.
From playgrounds in Iraq to soccer balls in Africa, every kid should have the right and freedom to simply play. In many parts of the world, soccer "balls" are made of old rags just knotted together. Baseball games are played with no gloves nor real baseballs. And playgrounds have never even existed. Now, in many Iraqi towns recently liberated from ISIS, kids are playing on swings for the first time in their life!
The main thing we need from everyone is prayer--nothing is more powerful than that and the gifts, awareness and sensitivities it creates. If you would like to make a donation, please contact me, and I will let you know how you may make a gift.
But if you will pray for us even once, or consider making a gift, would you please show your support by "liking" our Facebook page, Sport Kids? Thank you so much.
And thank you also for your time and your interest. May the Lord God bless you and encourage your support to those in greatest need around the globe.
