Gator Good Guys Collegiate Cup

    

Pete Fox founded The Gator Good Guys Collegiate Cup with a clear mission in mind: To inspire collegiate athletes to incorporate philanthropy into their lives.  More specifically, Pete wanted to share his passion for giving with The University of Florida men’s golf team, allowing them to understand and experience the difference that they can make in the community. 
.
This year’s charitable beneficiary lives out Pete’s vision. Team IMPACT is a national non-profit that connects children facing serious and chronic illnesses with local college athletic teams, forming life-long bonds and life-changing outcomes. Teams in the program officially welcome a child for 2+ years – attending practices, games, team dinners, events and more. Student-athletes are introduced to their matches as a new teammate, but soon thereafter, these new team members become inspirational friends. 
.
The Team Impact experience gives student athletes deeper insight into and appreciation for the challenges faced by others.  It educates as to the crucial role they can play in improving their communities.Children in the program have an improved quality of life as demonstrated through their increased optimism, confidence and feeling of belonging. Families feel connected and supported, giving them a sense of normalcy. 
.
We are thrilled to announce that our grant to Team IMPACT will immediately match the UF golf team with a child, recognize them as the inaugural Gator participants, and help establish a Team IMPACT Northeast Florida office. 
.
Our generous circle of “good guys and gals” can help ensure that Pete’s contagious passion for giving lives on. Your support will not only positively impact these budding philanthropists as they launch their professional careers – in golf or otherwise, and will also allow for Team IMPACT to spread throughout UF as well as teams at other local colleges. In short, your donation will positively impact the lives of numerous cancer patients, families in need, and untold future collegiate athletes.
