Our Mission is the enhancement of all lives "through" Sports.
We put on endurance sports events and other fundraisers that raise awareness and funds that enhance lives through sports.
Some of the beneficiaries include Challenged Athletes, Injured Veterans and First Responders, foster and at risk youth.

We use endurance sports events as fundraisers - We encourage participants and the public to fundraise, donate, and participate in raffles. This way athletes can participate for a cause and have a goal to meet physically and financially.

The founder of Life Sports Foundation has over 15 years in the endurance Sports Industry and has help participants raise over 100,000.

We will be successful by recruiting participants to become fundraisers and helping them in their fundraising.
Direct success of this program is measured in two ways:
1. In total funds collected and distributed to athletes directly or through other charitable organizations.
2. How Many people are helped through Life Sports Programs

We strive everyday to find new ways to enhance Life through Sports.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
