The 2019 Drake House Sports Camp
In November 2019, the Inspiring Together team organized a three-day sports camp for children of the Drake House. The Drake House is a North Fulton nonprofit that helps homeless mothers build a better future while keeping them together with their children. The camp brought together our team of volunteer coaches, all of whom are high school athletes, and a total of 36 Drake House children. Our coaches worked with the kids on the fundamentals of tennis, basketball and soccer, with each day dedicated to a different sport. The event gave participants the chance to practice skills and tricks across a range of athletic endeavors under the guidance of varsity players in each of those sports. It was a lot of fun for us and for the kids too! Thank you to the Drake House for the collaboration.
