I was asked to join the board for Athletes For Kids this year, this organization really changes the lives it touches. Not only the kids who they match through their mentor/mentee program but the families of the kids and the community in which these students are apart of are changed for the better.

I joined the board after my son got involved as a mentor with Athletes for Kids. It has helped him to appreciate how lucky he is. He really looks forward to spending time with his little buddy and he see how much it means to him as well. It's been a real growing experience for him.
