ATLAS RACE IS PROUD TO CONTRIBUTE PART OF OUR RACE PROCEEDS TO CHARITIES.

WE SUPPORT CHARITIES THAT ARE LOCAL TO OUR EVENTS AND NATIONAL.


1. AFTER-SCHOOL ALL-STARS

ASAS RECOGNIZES THAT OUR STUDENTS ARE ABLE TO ACHIEVE THEIR PERSONAL BEST IN SCHOOL WHEN THEY ARE EQUIPPED WITH THE TOOLS TO LEAD HEALTHY, ACTIVE LIFESTYLES.

WITH THE HELP OF FOX SPORTS NETWORKS, ASAS LAUNCHED SPORTS AS A HOOK— A UNIQUE SPORTS-BASED YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM WHICH CONNECTS SPORTS ACTIVITIES TO LESSONS ON LEADERSHIP, TEAMWORK, RESILIENCE, DISCIPLINE, NUTRITION, COMMUNITY SERVICE, GENDER EQUALITY AND EXPOSURE TO NATURE.

ASAS ALSO INTRODUCES STUDENTS TO PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES, CARING COACHES, AND SUCCESSFUL ROLE MODELS IN THE SPORTS INDUSTRY WHO TEACH STUDENTS ABOUT GOAL-SETTING, PUBLIC SPEAKING, INTERVIEW SKILLS, CAREER EXPLORATION, AND FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT.

SINCE FITNESS IS ONLY ONE PART OF THE HEALTHY LIVING EQUATION, NUTRITION IS ALSO INCORPORATED INTO SPORTS AS A HOOK. WE COVER TOPICS SUCH AS CALORIC INTAKE, DISTINGUISHING BETWEEN HEALTHY AND UNHEALTHY FOODS, AND HOW TO BUY AND COOK HEALTHY FOODS. WE ALSO EXPOSE STUDENTS TO NATURE AND THE OUTDOORS; TAKING OUR KIDS TO HIKE AND CAMP IN AREAS WHERE THEY MAY NOT OTHERWISE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT, LIKE NATIONAL PARKS AND BEACHES.

THROUGH SPORTS AS A HOOK, STUDENTS ALSO DESIGN CREATIVE WAYS TO INCORPORATE COMMUNITY SERVICE INTO THEIR PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES. STUDENTS CONNECT SPORTS TO SERVICE LEARNING BY LEADING THEIR OWN ATHLETIC FUNDRAISING EVENTS AND REFURBISHING LOCAL FIELDS AND PARKS.

"IN 2011, THE SOWF PROVIDED $3.7 MILLION IN PROGRAM SERVICES TO ITS BENEFICIARIES.  SADLY, THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN BEING ADDED TO OUR PROGRAMS CONTINUES TO GROW AS THE DEMAND IS INCREASED FOR SPECIAL OPERATIONS MISSIONS.  THEREFORE, WE MUST CONTINUE IN OUR FUNDRAISING EFFORTS TO MEET THE ANTICIPATED NEED FOR SCHOLARSHIPS.
