Austen Everett Foundation
Empowering kids in their fight against cancer through the strength and support of athletic teams.
Our mission statement is to empower kids in their fight against cancer through the strength and support of athletic teams. Our primary program is the Honorary Team Captain program which pairs a Captain, aka a child battling cancer, with a collegiate or professional athletic team to be empowered as a honorary team member. They receive an unique VIP experiences including attending a private practice, receiving a personalized jersey, hang out with the team at a game day warm up session, walking onto the field and tossing the coin for the Captain's toss. All of this in front of thousands of fellow sports fans who put their support behind our Captain's fight as well. These events allow the warrior to get a respite from the hospital and all the distress treatment causes. It also allows them and their family to enjoy a fun event together, focused on making sure they receive support and inspiration for their fight.
