Team IMPACT is a national nonprofit that connects children facing serious and chronic illnesses to local college athletic teams, forming life-long bonds and life-changing outcomes.
We do this by drafting these courageous kids with local college athletic teams. Team IMPACT children are drafted onto the team and become an official member of the team from Draft Day through to Graduation. The child joins the athletic team and the student athletes join the child’s support team.
The child gains great strength, camaraderie and support and the student athletes are taught lessons about courage, resiliency and life perspective that they can’t learn in a classroom.
Through a structured relationship management methodology, we establish and cultivate these relationships to ensure a successful experience for the families and teams involved.
To ensure the highest quality relationship possible, tremendous effort is placed on both the match-up process and relationship management.
