It’s with a heavy heart that I share the loss of my father, who was not just my parent but also my best friend. This experience has been a challenging journey, filled with various stages of grief. I am immensely grateful to everyone who has extended their support and patience during this time – your kindness means the world to me and my family.
The past few months have been a period of reflection and low energy for me. Thankfully, the support from my amazing staff and clients at AIDPPT has been a source of strength. I’ve realized that helping others in their pain also helps fill my own reservoir of hope and motivation.
One of my long-held dreams has been to start a non-profit organization. The mission? To empower individuals with the tools they need to become the best versions of themselves – a vision that aligns with AID Performance Physical Therapy’s philosophy.
While starting my own non-profit isn’t immediately feasible, I’ve found an incredible organization to support – Level the Playing Field (LPF).
Leveling the Playing Field: Tackling Inequality in Youth Sports
Did you know that 1 in 5 underserved families cannot afford to involve their kids in sports due to the high costs of equipment? This is where LPF steps in. They collect and redistribute sporting equipment to under-resourced communities, ensuring more children have access to sports and recreation.
I am excited to announce that AIDPPT will be actively supporting LPF. We are kickstarting a collection drive for sports equipment at our clinic located at 20925 Professional Plaza, STE 110, Ashburn, VA 20147.
- Baseball gloves
- Lacrosse sticks
- Football cleats
- Pickleball Equipment
How You Can Help
Let’s help make sports accessible to every child! You can bring your used sports gear to our clinic. For more information about LPF, visit their website or contact their Program Director, Mike Pierce, at email@example.com.
Apart from donating equipment, monetary contributions are also welcome to support LPF’s operations. Donations can be made directly on their website. Remember, “The surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others” – Martin Luther King.
I leave you with a thought: “Live the Life You Love, Love the Life You Live.” Let’s come together to make a difference in the lives of young athletes.
