Word to Live By:  Kindness allows you to show value for yourself and others in a contagious way. Life is challenging, and displaying kindness can often bring opportunities that would otherwise never be unearthed. Simple acts of kindness can switch our perspective from dark to light, from hopeless to hopeful, from reactive to creative.

Connection to Our Mission:  Our Pro Kids mission inspires me through its commitment to creating opportunities for all youth, not only breaking down barriers to educational and sporting resources, but by providing skills that help kids discover themselves to become better people for the rest of their lives.
