MaxInMotion® Scholarships Benefit 8,500 Young Athletes During First Six Years.
Sweeping cuts to school and community athletics have drastically limited opportunities for youth, especially in low-income communities. As a not-for-profit foundation, MaxInMotion® embraces the philosophy that youth sports contribute dramatically to character development and personal fitness, and that team participation helps establish values of community, interdependency and collective responsibility. The recipients of MaxInMotion® sports scholarships hail from Arizona and southern California, and participate largely in competitive soccer, hockey, and wheelchair power soccer and wheelchair basketball.
During its first six years, MaxInMotion® has:
- Awarded nearly 8,500 scholarships to young athletes, enabling them to participate in competitive sports.
- Established, with Ability360, the first wheel chair sports clinic program, which will lead to the formation of MaxInMotion® competitive leagues for disabled youth.
- Expanded, in partnership with Southern California Youth Soccer Organization, to the most underserved Latino communities throughout Southern California to create much needed athletic and leadership opportunities for Latino youth.
MaxinMotion® relies solely on the help of volunteers to operate and invests 100% of donations received directly in young athletes, making MaxInMotion® an extremely efficient and impactful foundation. On behalf of the thousands of young athletes who will be playing organized sports this year and beyond, we express our sincere gratitude for the generosity and support of our donors.
