The Sports4Life Foundation was formed to enrich the lives of athletes by providing athletic opportunities to help reach their individual potential and develop a lifelong passion for sports. We strongly believe sports are a positive influence and can provide a valuable education in leadership, teamwork and competition.
As a 501c3 nonprofit (tax ID #22-3445922), donations to the Sports4Life Foundation are tax-deductible. The Sports4Life Foundation encourages lifelong participation in sports at any level though the engaged passion and experiences funded by LEGACY Global Sports.
We are very grateful for your generous support. With your donations, we can help open the doors of opportunity for athletes from all walks of life.
Friday March 2nd to Sunday March 3rd marked the 4th year of Northeast Sled Hockey League Sports4Life Sled Hockey Classic! In 4 years, the tournament grew from 2 days to 3 and increased in the number of players from 9 teams to 15. US men’s and women's National Team as well as Development team players participate in the league. “Along with providing a structured, competitive Sled Hockey league, the individual benefits to our athletes are invaluable. The NESHL not only improves a player’s physical fitness but provides an environment to promote and improve their independence, assist with building their life skills, and improve their quality of life. The lessons taught through competing assist the individual to better manage life’s ups and downs while stressing the value of maintaining a positive attitude.” from NESHL website

Brandon White wanted one thing for his 11th birthday - a chance for other kids to play the sports they love every day. “What I like most about being involved in sports is the competitive and social aspect of them. I get to play with and against my friends in competitions which I find enjoyable.”
Instead of accepting physical gifts for his birthday, Brandon asked all of his friends and family to make a donation to the Sports4Life Foundation. “I am fortunate enough to have the equipment in need to play the sports I love provided to me. I felt that rather than getting things I don’t need for my birthday, I asked people to donate money to those that aren’t as fortunate, but have similar interests as me.”
Having raised over $400 for Sports4Life in just one day, Brandon’s goal is to “make the world a better place by developing a way for money to not be an obstacle in the pursuit of happiness.Sports4life matters to me because they’re a foundation that provides money to kids that have a desire to play sports but are unable to afford it. I don’t think money should be an obstacle, any kid that wants to play sports should have the opportunity to do so.”
