Ensuring No Child is Sidelined by Sickness Through Team Support
LEARFIELD is proud to work with Team IMPACT in connecting children facing serious and chronic illnesses to college athletic teams. Being a part of a supportive team helps these brave kids tackle emotional trauma and social isolation. Team IMPACT is a Boston-based non-profit that helps student-athletes, coaching staff, and fan communities come together to make an urgently needed difference in the lives of these children.
Over 55 of our LEARFIELD partner institutions are already involved with Team IMPACT – some with eight or more different sports teams and programs matched with children. LEARFIELD is working to grow the program to match more schools, teams and sports to further the mission of Team IMPACT.
As COVID-19 continues to impact traditional support structures for families with immunocompromised children, the need for community has never been greater. No amount of medicine can treat the undeniable effects of childhood illness. Being a part of a team makes a difference.
