With a charitable donation, you are enabling us to work with athletes at all levels to help them ignite their passions and make a difference across a vast range of causes. You are also bolstering the important work of our charitable partners throughout the country as well as our ongoing programming supporting underserved youth physical activity, hospital visits, mental health and AFH University.
Together, we can harness the unifying power of the athletic spirit to make a difference in the world.
Any amount donated to Athletes for Hope enables us to bring athletes together to educate and inspire them to channel their energy for a common goal: to make a difference in the world.
