Play It Forward!
"Hi, it's Bobby Valentine, Executive Director of Athletics at Sacred Heart University, asking you to Play It Forward!"
At Sacred Heart, I get to meet and work with some of the finest young athletes in Connecticut. They come from many backgrounds. But they have something in common.
They've enjoyed the support of adults– dads, moms, family, and friends – who have encouraged them and helped them do their best. A big part of that is providing the proper equipment - from bats and gloves to lacrosse and hockey sticks. That’s where Play It Forward comes in. There are many kids today who don't go out for teams for lack of equipment, but now we can all help. Clean out your closets, and gather good-condition used sports equipment for donation at one of our drop off points. You'll be helping young people have fun, develop self-discipline, and learn teamwork ...character traits that will stay with them all their lives."
Sponsor a kid in your own community! You are not just funding a fee; you’re funding a future, a talent undiscovered, a chance to press play on a dream that will move a child forward.
We want to find kids behind the fence and put them back on the bench, in a league of their dreams. Organized sports are the future of many kids’ social skills, confidence, and high spirits, but too many miss the opportunity to put a glove on their hand or cleats on their feet. Too many families cannot afford the equipment or registration fees, but know how big their kids’ dream. That’s why WEBE108 has teamed up with our clients and our community of listeners to collect pre-played sports equipment and donations to raise the spirits of our youth. We want to put the dream back in teams and we need your help!
