We are proud to announce Sports 4 All as our local benefiting charity for our 5k Foam Fest Nashville! Please meet two of Sports 4 All’s 2013 spokespeople.

Clay

Clay

“Clay Sircy is one of Sports 4 All’s Spokespeople for 2013. We chose Clay to be one of our spokespeople because of his performance in the April 2012 triathlon hosted by the Alpha Delta Pi’s at Middle Tennessee University. During the month of April he was also chosen as one of our MVP’s (Most Valuable Participant). He showed great determination during the triathlon training, and this was the first time he had ever competed as a swimmer in a race. Clay is a Project HEATLH (Helping Every Ability Learn To be Healthy) participant and Special Olympics athlete. Sports 4 All loves Clay because he is always happy to participate in any of our activities. He is also a joy to have in our Project HEALTH classes. He is extremely cooperative during class, and he is always eager to get to work. “Clay is one of the happiest people I’ve ever met. He is always smiling, and he is always happy to see Sports 4 All staff,” said Janey Smith, a Sports 4 All staff member. We are so pleased that we can introduce Clay to the community because he is a great athlete, and he embodies what Sports 4 All works to accomplish.”

Redora1

Ridora

“Ridora Winfree is also one of Sports 4 All’s Spokespeople for 2013. We chose Ridora as one of our spokespeople because she has improved so much since we first met her. We first met Ridora when she came to Sports Com in Murfreesboro, TN to participate in Project HEALTH. When she began participating in Project HEALTH, she was shy and unsure of herself. She didn’t really participate in the exercise classes very much. In the two years that we have known her, she has come out of her shell and is more positive and excited about exercise. Many times during the Project HEALTH classes is will even correct her caregivers when they are not performing the exercises correctly. She is a positive influence on her peers, and we just love to be around her. She is always happy and excited to see Sports 4 All staff. “Ridora is so funny, and she is so much fun to have in class. She brings a smile to my face when I see her at Sports Com on Wednesdays. She is become one of our best Project HEALTH participants,” said Anna Dannibale, Sports 4 All’s Project HEALTH program facilitator.”

We are lucky to have these two individuals as our spokespeople for 2013!

Our Dallas Charity

Hey Dallas!

We are headed your way this week. We can’t wait to see y’all at the 5k Foam Fest this weekend! I’d like to introduce you to the charity that is benefiting from your foamy muddy fun. We are teaming up with Mercury One.

Mercury One is a private charity that aims to join hands with its fellow citizens in improving the human condition in any way it can. When Mercury One caught wind of a young girl giving up her birthday party to raise money for feeding the homeless, for instance, they were inspired and wanted to help. Thanks to Mercury One supporters, the company pitched in $10,000 to help the young girl’s cause. They then joined forces with Glenn Beck and Wolfgang Puck to throw her the biggest birthday party she’s ever seen.

Later in 2012, when Hurricane Sandy ripped through the northeast United States, Mercury One was there to help. Thanks to the overwhelming support of concerned Americans, Mercury One was able to partner with a number of churches and other charitable organizations to provide food, blankets, emergency kits, and other necessities after the region was devastated by the storm.

Reverend Peter M. DeArruda from NYSUM (one of the charitable organizations Mercury One partnered with) said, “We cannot thank Mercury One enough for your kind and compassionate support. . . You continue to enable us to house, feed, train and deploy NYSUM’s ministry teams for massive outreaches throughout New York City – in partnership with NYC pastors, churches and not for profits.”

In ways large and small, Mercury One continues to work every day to help build up American communities. Mercury One’s mission is simple, yet monumental: “To inspire, organize and mobilize individuals to improve the human condition physically, emotionally and spiritually with malice towards none and charity for all.”
