When asked the question, "Why Team IMPACT?" Kelly said:
Sports has been an integral part of my life since I was young, so I fully understand the value and camaraderie that comes with being part of a team. Being able to give children with serious and chronic illnesses the opportunity to experience what I did as a student-athlete is amazing. I am inspired by the work that Team IMPACT does on a daily basis and look forward to contributing to forming life-long bonds and life-changing outcomes!
