For those of us that are lucky enough, our only responsibilities as kids were to go to school, study, chores, and go to our afternoon basketball practice. Or soccer practice. Or volleyball.
Growing up, that’s all many of us had to do. Our parents were able to provide a roof over head, food whenever we were hungry, and a bed to sleep in.
Unfortunately, it’s not like that for a lot of children.
Sports matter—this is the underlying message that Dick’s Sporting Goods is getting at—because the children matter.
