Founded in 2011, Team IMPACT improves the quality of life for children facing life-threatening and chronic illnesses by drafting them onto local college athletic teams. Team IMPACT children become an official member of the team from Draft Day through Graduation. They gain great strength, camaraderie, and support from the experience. Simultaneously, the student-athletes gain lessons about courage, resiliency and life perspective that they can’t learn in a classroom.
