THE MISSON OF LEGACY LACES
We believe that having the opportunity to play team sports can change lives. So, we’re on a mission to get gear into the hands of kids who are sidelined or struggling to stay involved. We accomplish this goal by providing new and/or gently used "game ready" cleats and sports equipment we receive from our generous donors to kids in need lacking the resources necessary to participate in team sports.
WHY LEGACY LACES
Have you ever observed a mound of unused sports equipment just lying around your garage? Or wonder what you should do with those outgrown cleats that still have life in them? More than once, maybe you thought to yourself, "I bet there's someone out there who could use these." We know we did.
In fact, we believe that the underutilization of these piles of unused sports gear is lamentable given the incredible need for sports equipment by underprivileged kids across our nation pleading for the opportunity to play team sports. But it's not the missing gear that drove us to start Legacy Laces. It's the problem of sidelined kids missing out on the opportunity to thrive from the positive physical, mental, and emotional benefits associated with playing team sports that moved us to action. Time and again, studies show that participation in team sports allows kids to learn about teamwork, make lasting friendships, develop communication skills, feel a sense of community, learn respect for their teammates and coaches, and the importance of being a responsible and reliable team member; and we believe that having the chance to learn these life-lessons on the field will serve kids well beyond the pitch and into their adult lives.
Legacy Laces was therefore founded to ensure there would be a way to bring excess, outgrown and/or unused gear to kids in need so they would have the opportunity to play team sports and benefit from all that athletics has to offer!
