Changing Lives through Sport

Sport really can play a fundamental and lasting role in changing the lives of young people across the world. Read what a few inspirational athletes and sports leaders have accomplished and what they had to say.

Tegla LoroupeKenyan long-distance track and road runner

“In 2003, I founded the Tegla Loroupe Peace Foundation and it has been an active advocate for peace, successfully bringing members of warring tribes together. In 2006, I also founded the 10 km Peace Race, which included 2,000 warriors from 6 tribes. Not only in Kenya, my Peace Race and Peace Foundation have been widely praised for helping to end tribal conflict, and for other humanitarian activities.”

Roger StaubachAmerican football quarterback

“All of us get knocked down, but it's resiliency that really matters. All of us do well when things are going well, but the thing that distinguishes athletes is the ability to do well in times of great stress, urgency and pressure.”

Ahmad RashadNBA Broadcaster

“Sports can unite a group of people from different backgrounds, all working together to achieve a common goal. And even if they fall short, sharing that journey is an experience they'll never forget. It can teach some of the most fundamental and important human values: dedication, perseverance, hard work, and teamwork. It also teaches us how to handle our success and cope with our failure. So, perhaps the greatest glory of sport is that is teaches us so much about life itself.”

Donna de VaronaOlympic gold medalist swimmer

“The values learned on the playing field--how to set goals, endure, take criticism and risks, become team players, use our bodies, stay healthy and deal with stress--prepare us for life. A great champion deals with setback with a comeback.”

Dikembe Mutombo NBA Professional

“Over the past thirteen years, I have been fortunate to donate over $15 million to build the Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital in my hometown of Kinshasa. The facility epitomizes the Mutombo Foundation’s commitment to its primary mission of preventing diseases, improving access to primary health care, and bolstering heath research and education in the nation.”

Wladimir KlitschkoHeavyweight Boxing Champion

“I have a Ph.D. in philosophy and sports science. At 14, I went through this really tough Soviet training system. A lot of my roommates got psychologically broken or physically injured. Either you came through, or you were out. I made my Ph.D. work in the field of young athletes aged 14-19 because at this age any human is changing.”

Magic JohnsonHall of Fame NBA Player, Businessman, Philanthropist

“The Magic Johnson Foundation has managed to raise hundreds of millions of dollars to help rid the world of what was once considered the deadliest disease on the planet. My major influence on HIV was on the initial affect on public opinion, and I worked very hard to take the levels of discussions and the fear of the public to logical realms, for good. ”

Stephen M. RossAmerican philanthropist and sports team owner

“Sports is the common denominator in the world that brings everyone together. If there's any one place in the world where there is equality, it is probably sports. That was something that didn't always exist. We've come a long way in sports. Why can't society use sports as a way to bring people together and create change?”

Jesse Owens4x Gold Medal Olympian

“During the 1936 Berlin Olympics, Adolf Hitler attempted to use the Games as a showcase for his Third Reich and the supposed superiority of the Aryan race. I turned that theory on its head right quick by winning four gold medals in the 100m sprint, the long jump, 200m sprint, and the 4x100m relay. ”

Roberto ClementeHall of Fame, Baseball Player

“As a professional baseball player, I wanted to best represent my people. I always cared about children, so I made time to hold baseball clinics for kids, especially for those from low-income families. My dream was to build a “Sports City” where Puerto Rican youth would have ready access to facilities, coaching, and encouragement in many sports.”
