Sport can bring out the best in us. By committing to and competing in a sport, people are able to transform into athletes. Athletes grow - physically, their bodies may change, mentally, their minds will. The focus, persistence, challenge and dedication required by athletes competing at any level are essential characteristics that are learned with experience. Through the experiences athletes encounter in sport, they’re able to practice living out these characteristics with every rep, every match, and every interaction with their teammates or competitors.
Athletes aren’t the only ones who are impacted by sport; friends and family are spectators and superfans who bring enthusiasm and support to the pool deck, the sidelines, the court, the field or the rink. With the support of friends and family, athletes are able to share the growth in their sport with everyone who helped contribute to their success. This camaraderie - friends cheering you on from the side, looking for mom in the stands after winning a match 3-2, looking for dad after scoring a touchdown - is what will be remembered. On this Thanksgiving, we’re thankful for sport, specifically, for log rolling (shocking, we know)
