On March 16, 2020, interactive sports came to a stop, and every plan we had in place ended. We decided if kids could not go and play sports, then we would bring sports to them. “Sport In A Bag” was created, and Lindy’s Locker hit the road!
In partnership with OSU LiFEsports, we traveled all across Ohio delivering our bags to children in need. Each one included a jump rope, a set of cones, and either a basketball, a football, or a soccer ball, and an instructional guide with drills to help children stay active. To date, we have traveled over 6,000 miles and served nearly 13,000 children. Remaining active, especially during times like these, is a crucial component in maintaining the physical and mental health of our youth.
Now, more than ever, kids need sports!
