NASC Sports Legacy Committee Announces 2015 Beneficiary

NASC - Mon, 11/10/2014 - 10:35

The NASC Sports Legacy Committee is pleased to announce the selection of the Running Rebels Community Organization as the 2015 beneficiary.

Since 1980, Running Rebels has been dedicated to developing Milwaukee’s youth mentally, physically and spiritually. By offering programs that focus on education and recreational activities, Running Rebels provides Milwaukee’s youth with positive alternatives to gangs and substance abuse.

The proceeds raised for the 2015 NASC Sports Legacy Fund will go toward the Running Rebels basketball fundamentals program which will expand the number of youth served and aide in the development of year-round programming.  Funding will off-set operating expenses for the program including gym rental and referee fees, equipment, transportation, training for older youth to become certified referees, and healthy snacks.  This will allow the program to become much more than a fundamentals program; utilizing young people’s love of basketball to benefit them physically, socially and academically.

Watch a brief video about Running Rebels.

About the NASC Sports Legacy Fund

Originally created by the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Sports Commission, the NASC Sports Legacy Fund awards an annual grant and sports equipment donation to an organization in need in the host city the NASC Symposium.

An emphasis is placed on donations to not-for profit organizations that provide individuals, particularly at-risk youth, veterans, or physically or intellectually disabled individuals, opportunities to participate in sport and encourage healthy lifestyles. This contribution is part of the legacy the NASC leaves in each host city.

Thanks to the generosity of our members, the NASC Sports Legacy Fund made a donation of $14,000 to Oklahoma Cleats for Kids.  “The Sports Legacy grant is helping Oklahoma Cleats for Kids with opportunities to help more kids,” said Stacy McDaniel of Cleats for Kids. “We have purchased four bins for sporting goods collections and will be purchasing three permanent outdoor collection bins for locations around the Oklahoma City area. Also, our programs director, who has been a part time employee, has moved to full time. This is making a big impact on C4K’s ability to reach more kids.”

For more information about how you can help leave a legacy, contact Elizabeth Young, Director of Membership and Marketing, at Elizabeth@sportscommissions.org.
