Sports have had a transformative impact on my life – at different stages with measurable effect. Joy, unity and community.
As a child it was the thin line between being left out and being included. It helped me break down barriers, like a trailblazing politician who is unafraid and leaves a path of good will. I owe a lot to sports, like I took a loan from it that it didn’t even ask me to pay back. I want others to enjoy the opportunities it gave me. I want to share the wealth – like a billionaire who gives away a million a month as a challenge.
Some of my best friends – some of my quickest human connections – have come from shared interest in sports. It’s also a connection I share with my superhero, athlete mom.
Let’s learn some lessons together on this journey.
