(WBNG) – A local charitable sports organization that gives back to the youth in our community.
Support Our Sports New York helps raise funds for a scholarship for underserved young athletes who aspire to cover both equipment costs and registration fees.
“The cost of equipment and cleats is more today than when I was in school,” said Support Our Sports founder Terri Farrell. “When families are concerned about putting food on their tables, they are not worried about their children in sports, even though we know all the great benefits that exercise provides.”
Just last month, Support Our Sports NY hosted a football and flag football tournament sponsored by Molina Health Care to help raise money for the organization.
Superbowl and Endicott champ, Art Jones, made a special appearance at the tournament – a tribute to families and sharing his love for the sport with young people.
“To have additional support and services to help our children exercise, it really gives families a sense of security that their children are going to be responsible for something. It will help keep them out of trouble,” Farrell said.
Youth must go through the required application process to receive financial aid from Support Our Sports NY.
