The Legends Kids First organization is top notch. Being lead by the founder, who is probably the most passionate and loving individual I have ever met, is doing things the right way in our society.
Providing education to stop and recognize bullying on ALL levels towards ALL people is invaluable. Providing better health and exercise info to help others lead a healthier lifestyle is very important as well.

With great powers comes great responsibility. LEGENDS KIDS FIRST leads the pack in this area.

Keep on keeping on!

I worked with this organization and it was wonderful. They helped kids with sports. Nutrition, and taught them safety and how important learning was. If ever given the opportunity again I would help them again. They are great.

Cardte Hicks of The Legends Kids First for years has put the healthy futures of the children she has been involved with as a top priority. Her passion for her organization is obviously from the bottom of her heart, as she does put her kids first!

I worked with The Legends as a basketball coach for a couple years and always had a blast. Kind people, good basketball, and lots of laughs. They helped me find out that coaching was a real passion of mine, for that I will be forever grateful. And Cardte is amazing

I live next store to Carte Hicks. Her generosity and kindness is wonderful. Examples of helpful the neighborhood kids: fishing rod for one kid to go fishing with his group, a young girl needed a computer and Carte gave her one. The young teen being bullied at school found an encourager and sympathetic friend. Whoever she meets she makes a friend for life. It’s my honor to promote The Legends Kids First, Inc. Katy Orr

I just had to rate our programs. Working with youth is my passion. I will do it until God takes me home. Our youth today are dealing with so many negative views on loving one another and treating each other as equals. It’s so sad how many folks would rather judge you because of your skin color. My kids are wonderful and understand the true meaning of team work. My work will never give up hope or dreams for the youth. Yes we can live a better life and just DO YOU!

I met Cardte in 2018. Once I met Cardte, she has the personality of just an immediate friend. Always upbeat, always kind, constructive words to say. When she told me about Legends, I was very impressed and seeing how the neighborhood children gravitated towards her, well, I’ll just say people like Cardte are one of a kind, and my life was made much richer the day I met her. I see Legends Kids First as SUPER beneficial for kids, gaining motivation towards sports rather than indoor or video games.
Legends and Cardte have my full support and I’m hopeful to do as much as possible in the future for “Coach” and her kids!!

Much Respect Cardte,

Robert Martinez

I have been apart of the Legends since 2005. Watching Cardte interaction with youth and teens brought attention to wanting to be apart of this organization. Youth dealing with special needs, health issues and especially those with autism, I witness Cardte’s passion doing all she could to make a difference.

I have known the founder for years. The positive impact the organization has had on so many youth is nothing short of amazing. The personal support and encouragement provided has provided my daughter a great experience and she has chosen to continue her volunteering experience with children.

Oh my when I first found out about this program, they help us with our son Daniel dealing with diabetes. The live and care and the program he was in made him feel better about himself and gain confidence. Today he is in High School as a member of the football team and has reversed his diabetes.

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

I went to a basketball camp put on by this organization and it was the absolute best camp I have ever been to. Wish I could still go.
