I am proud to say that I had the opportunity to volunteer as a coach for the youth during the sports camps. Having to been a part of this non-profit company was a game changer for me and working with the CEO of The Legends Kids First, Cardte Hicks was such an eye opener. I gained the confidence to excel in the work force to which has led me to greater opportunities throughout my work history. I want to give a special thanks to The Legends Kids First and to the wonderful person, Cardte Hicks, that started this awesome company for the youth! Thank you for everything that you've taught and done for me

Cardte Hicks and Legends helped show my son the importance of friendship, team work, health, sports, motivation and mostly showing him, he can be anything he wanted to be. My son started going to her camp very young, he was one of the smallest kids with the biggest hearts. He was trying to shot 3 pointers before he could make layouts lol. She saw his heart and gave him a nickname "Larry Bird". After about 10 years, we still stay in touch. Thanks for everything. God Bless

The Legends Kids First is a great program that its the community involved in sports and healthy living starting with the kids in the community. I started helping with this group in high school and some time in college helping coach some of the camps held and helped with promoting the group to the people in the community. This is a wonderful program that truly helps change the lives of the youth for the better.

Hello my name is Tom Askins and I am very proud of this young lady who has shown passion for her program and giving back to many. What can I say about Cardte, she is a warm loving person that believes in giving back. Sure hope that someone will finally sponsor her programs with more than she has been giving. I have known her to put up her own money just to make sure her kids would be able to attend her camps for free. I wish her the best and yes I would volunteer anytime if asked.

As a former board member of this organization, it was a pleasure to have worked with Cardte Hicks. As she moves across the United States working with youth and giving back, I can only hope that her message will make a difference as she did here in Sacramento. Congrat Cardte and we sure miss you here in Northern California.

Cardte Hicks has been an inspiration in my life. I worked with her program as one of her coaches and had the best time ever working with the youth basketball camps. If I could I would still be apart of this organization, however she pushed me to run my own 501C.3 to continue the work in disadvantage communities. Thank you Cardte for my success.

I was not aware of this program until my sister told me about the work she has been doing for youth and seniors. I decided to volunteer and what a joy to work with the youth in her program. I just thank God that she is continuing with her mission to make a difference and that I can volunteer.

The Legends, Kids First does excellent work in the entire Sacramento community. I have been to Healthy Foods eating camps in Rancho Cordova and exercise camps in Oak Park and Sacramento. Their entire purpose is to promote healthy kids which fights the epidemic of obesity and diabetes.
