Mission Statement

Team IMPACT is a national nonprofit that connects children facing serious and chronic illnesses with college athletic teams, forming lifelong bonds and life-changing outcomes. 

Background Statement

Our program pairs children with life-threatening and chronic illnesses with collegiate athletic teams, to give families two years of team-based support. Each child is matched with a local team based on proximity to their home or treatment center and participates to the best of their abilities two-to-four times per month in practices, games and team events while coaches/players become part of the family’s support network. In addition, each family/team relationship is assigned a dedicated Team IMPACT case manager. Our case managers are licensed clinical social workers and play a key role in creating and sustaining these relationships by providing team training, monitoring participant engagement and encouraging meaningful connections to measurably improve quality of life for these children, families and collegiate athletes.

Our participants are between the ages of 5-18 years old and have been diagnosed with a life-threatening or chronic illness for at least three months in addition to experiencing psychological, social, emotional and/or physical challenges and could benefit from team-based support. Children that are accepted into the program have either been referred through a healthcare professional, like-minded organization or their families have applied to our program directly via our online application on our website.

Impact Statement

Through Team IMPACT, a child battling illness becomes an official (non-playing) member of a college athletic team, attending practices, games, team dinners and more. After two years with the team, the child graduates from the program with demonstrated improvements in their optimism, confidence and sense of belonging. Parents and siblings gain a community of support and a distraction from medical realities, and college athletes gain invaluable inspiration and perspective that will be carried with them long after graduation. Since 2011, Team IMPACT has matched over 1,800 children with more than 600 colleges and universities in 48 states, positively impacting more than 50,000 participating student athletes.

Needs Statement

For $2,500/per year ($5,000 to sponsor a two-year relationship) you can change the quality of life for a family facing pediatric illness and give a team of college athletes the opportunity to learn life lessons they can't learn in the classroom or on the field. You can give toward regional matches or school/team-specific matches. 

Being a part of a team is invaluable for children facing life-threatening or chronic illnesses. They not only gain a distraction from their everyday medical realities, they gain camaraderie and an opportunity to live beyond their illness and enjoy being a kid. Subsequently, by positively impacting these children, college athletes learn about courage and adversity that they would not learn in a classroom. As these student athletes graduate and disperse across the nation, we’re inspiring this generation of college graduates to be compassionate leaders committed to bettering the world around them and upholding a sense of civic responsibility. Our college athletes have reported that as a result of participating in the Team IMPACT program, they have increased empathy for others and are more civic-minded and engaged in their communities.

Our family/team relationships are matched and managed by dedicated Case Managers/Licensed Clinical Social Workers who are an integral part of our program. Our West Coaxt Case Manager, Lynn LaRocca, is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) with over six years of case management experience at Hasbro Children’s Hospital. Her expertise in managing families through the phases of diagnosis through treatment and beyond is invaluable as we train our college teams to become a true support system for our families.

Team IMPACT is chartered to improve the quality of life for children facing life-threatening and chronic illnesses. Core to our model is harnessing the power of teamwork by matching these courageous kids with college athletic teams. Team IMPACT children are drafted onto local college athletic teams and become an official member of the team for the duration of their treatment and beyond. The child joins the athletic team and the student athletes join the child's support team. This involves fully supporting each other both on and off the field and participating in a full range of activities throughout the year(s) to include; attending practices and games, gaining on-field access, going to the movies, going for ice cream, making hospital visits, etc. This represents an active and multi-year relationship both in and out of season, including the summer. At Team IMPACT, there is no off-season when it comes to showing friendship and support for your youngest teammate.

Category  Diseases, Disorders & Medical Disciplines, General/Other Diseases & Disorders
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years)
Program Short-Term Success  The short-term result is an extended support network from which the child can derive more laughter, strength, and support. In a world of feeling distanced and disconnected because of their medical, social and physical adversities, these team-based friendships provide an incredibly vibrant outlet for the child to feel the powerful bonds that come from being part of something bigger. The child benefits from the camaraderie, support, laughter, and respect that come from being a valued member of a team. For each and every member of the participating athletic team, the experience provides inspiration and perspective. The players gain invaluable perspective on the precious nature of life, and are humbled and inspired by the determination, strength, and courage of a child fighting through such adversity.
Program Long-Term Success  Beyond the immediate and direct impact of our program on the children, their family and the teams, we believe the program will produce longer-term benefits on the broader community. As thousands of college athletes in a particular region develop meaningful relationships with these children and their families we believe it will serve to: increase education, awareness, and support for the medical and disease communities--support from both a financial perspective and in the form of volunteerism--and to increase education, awareness, sensitivity, compassion, and support for children facing adverse issues and events.
Program Success Monitored By  We maintain a weekly internal dashboard that measures the quality of each relationship across a number of measures to include: Frequency of Visits,       Sibling Involvement, Strength of Team Advocates, Depth/Breadth of the Relationship across the Team, Off Field and Off Campus Activity, Out of Season Involvement. In addition, we measure the quality of each relationships across a number of Pediatric Quality of Life Measures to include: Emotional Increased Self-Confidence Brighter Sense of Future Social Establishment of Social Identity/Social Belonging Improved Social Skills and Ability to Make & Keep Friends Physical Increased Motivation to Eat Right & Opportunity for Exercise Increased Energy, Appetite, and Stamina School Less Stress & Anxiety about Attending School Motivation to Succeed Academically
Examples of Program Success  With the help of our board of Medical Ambassadors, we track the improvements in the quality of life in the participating children across the universally accepted Pediatric Quality of Life Measures. Anecdotal data, in the form of Case Studies, in addition to monthly surveys conducted with participating families illustrate significant improvement in the child's quality of life. In addition, the number of repeat clients (families referring other families, campuses with multiple teams participating, medical professionals making multiple child referrals) also confirms that this program is a success.
