"From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life." ~Arthur Ashe
The NASC Sports Legacy Fund silent auction and raffle will be held on March 31, 2014 - April 2, 2014. The mission of the Sports Legacy Fund is to support and impact opportunities for sports participation in member cities of NASC, particularly in the host city of the annual NASC Sports Event Symposium.
The 2014 beneficiary is Oklahoma Cleats for Kids. Oklahoma Cleats for Kids collects, recycles and distributes new and gently used athletic shoes and equipment to kids in need. In its first year of operation in 2012, Cleats for Kids delivered more than 5,000 pairs of shoes, clothing and equipment to Oklahoma kids in need.
Preview auction and raffle items ranging from exotic vacation getaways to donated items guaranteed to delight and surprise. Our goal is to raise $20,000. So, tell your friends, family, community. Get everyone in on the auction action!

How the Sports Legacy Fund Helped in Louisville in 2013
The membership of the NASC raised $12,000 for Run. Louisville, Run!, a program of the YMCA at Norton Commons, through a grant from the NASC Sports Legacy Fund, raised from the proceeds of the Sports Legacy Fund auction and raffle. More than 750 leaders in the sports events industry attended the annual Symposium and many supported the Sports Legacy Fund by donating items for the raffle and auction, sponsoring tables, and/or purchasing raffle tickets and bidding on auction items.
Run.Louisville, Run! provides an eight-week running program for deserving kids in the community and focuses on increasing self-esteem, promoting healthy living and offering a positive after-school experience.
“This grant is one of our largest to date,” said Mike Bramer, District Executive Director, YMCA at Norton Commons. “We serve about 120 youth with each program and now we will be able to quadruple the number of our participants in our Run Louisville Run program, where we teach young men and women the power of progressively realizing worthy goals while running.”
