Thank you so much for the school supplies that you donated to my first grade class at West Vernon Ave Elementary School. The students really appreciated the items and are still using them at home and in the classroom.
Tickets are limited, but we have an opportunity for seven classrooms to visit before the end of the school year. We are humbly requesting that AGB Sports sponsor seven classrooms for this exciting trip.
There are 25 students in each classroom and the price is $5 per student. Because we are located in an impoverished neighborhood, we do not like to burden the parents with additional fees for trips, etc.
We would be very thankful if AGB Sports could donate a total of $1500 which would allow 300 students to have the experience of a lifetime.
A.G.B. Sports Foundation’s mission is to engage parents and children ages 6-14 to focus on three of the following five sports Basketball, Baseball, Football, Soccer or Track before high school.
A.G.B Sports Foundation focuses on providing diversified athletic programs that give our youth opportunities to achieve education and personal development that will increase their chance of earning an athletic or academic scholarship.
Many of the participants are from Low Income Families and do not have many opportunities for this kind of travel. This trip will be valuable in terms of athletics and education.
A seminar is scheduled for July 20th., 2013 where the participants will hear from, and have a chance to interact with, a local sports trainer and network sports reporter who will speak to the kids about their careers and the opportunities made available to them through sports.
There are 28 athletes in need of sponsorship. Your donation will be used to provide Hotel Accommodations, Food, and Entertainment for this event.

You’ve no doubt heard about our nationwide obesity problem. Childhood rates have skyrocketed in the last few decades. It’s no wonder, really. Kids just don’t get out and play like they used to. If we don’t figure this problem out and find a solution, these overweight kids are going to grow up to be overweight adults. And that means heart disease, diabetes, and a host of other health issues.
An old Danish proverb states that, “fresh air impoverishes the doctor.” The problem is that there are so many indoor entertainments competing for our children’s attention. Video games and television are just the tip of the iceberg. As they get a little older, they quickly add social networking and texting to the mix. While eliminating these diversions completely is probably just a pipedream, there are good reasons to limit their use and counter their influence. But how?
Getting your child involved in team sports can help.
