The Legends Foundation is a 501c3 non profit organization, establish in 2008. We are a faith based organization with the ability to bring communities together to offer sports inclusion camps for those with disabilities, with a focus to educate our audience to be responsible and understand consequences come from the choices they make.
Legends 4:20™… Making a difference is the goal. County and state statistics indicate the daily choices we make determine our futures. Our society addresses the end results of poor choices through issues and we attempt to fix from the top down, putting short sighted measures and more money put into the system is a temporary fix, but not a solution. Unemployment, food stamps, child support and health care coverage statistics continue to increase, only to add to our deficit.
At 4:20p each day, teen pregnancy increases, gangs unite, computer pedophiles are on the prowl, children tend to become lethargic and need to exercise. Unsupervised is the case at times, because both parents work or there may only be a single parent, drugs use issues and alcohol consumption becomes a temptation. At this critical time of day, good choices and being aware of choices made, affects students and their communities for a lifetime. 24 million fatherless children in the US, drug infested homes, babies having babies, gang increase with weapons and violence migrate to our neighborhoods. Can you believe, accordingly to the NFL, the current generation is projected to be the first not to live longer than its parents! Our children are our greatest resources. These daily choices can be a direct link to gangs, obesity, teen pregnancies, robberies, pedophiles, burglaries, illegal weapons, pornography, sexual offenses, bullying, drugs and alcohol use by our youth, often times leading to incarceration.
