Description

A panel of professional athletes, coaches and community stakeholders will unpack the important role that professional athletes should and do play in the lives of urban public school youth. Best practices and tips will be shared in a collaborative atmosphere.

Proceeds will fund art, music and play therapy for students at Unlimited Visions Aftercare, a Houston-based treatment program for chemically dependent adolescents and adults, and DePelchin-Richmond, a Richmond-based inpatient facility that treats children and adolescents with mental health conditions and behavioral problems.
