Russell Athletic is putting together a cool program that will help out high school sports programs. You may or may not have kids involved in sports, but I thought this would be interesting to your readers and their kids who may have an inspiring story.
Yesterday marked the beginning of the second annual “Fight Like Dylan Award,” which honors the courageous life of Dylan Rebeor, a terminally ill football player whose last wish was for new equipment for his teammates. In honor of Dylan’s character, courage and consideration of others, Russell will donate apparel and equipment via a $50,000 grant to one high school team that has demonstrated determination through sports. Please watch the video below to see an ESPN report on Dylan’s inspirational story:
To be eligible for the “Fight Like Dylan Award,” teams must post a submission on the Russell Athletic® Facebook page explaining how their team overcame a challenge or triumphed in the face of adversity. Anyone is eligible to submit an entry on behalf of their favorite high school team by logging onto www.facebook.com/russellathletic. Entries will be accepted now through December 3rd. The contest’s official rules are also available on the site.
