TO BENEFIT: A portion of all proceeds will be donated to the DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation to
help save local youth sports. Billions of dollars in funding has been cut from youth sports programs
across the nation in recent years, leaving millions of students unable to play. The DICK'S Sporting
Goods Foundation believes that sports make people better. Sports build character, increase
confidence, and motivate kids to stay in school and aim for higher education. Since 2014, the DICK'S
Sporting Goods Foundation has pledged over $50 million to give children the opportunity to play.
Through these efforts, our initiative has raised awareness of the importance of youth sports and saved
over 1,800 teams.
