During our trips sports teams build homes for poor families over the course of one weekend. The build creates a sense of purpose and camaraderie that leads to successful working relationships on the playing field. #hopesports Photo by: @ric0suave3

" The experience gave a group of elite athletes from vastly differing backgrounds the opportunity to come together and create something for a family in need. Taking part in a new activity such as building a home not only leveled the playing field with regard to skills, but additionally, it gave us the chance to engage in acts where perfection was not attainable or necessary.

We built our first home as athletes after the 2012 London Olympics. We assembled a group of rowers, triathletes, cyclists and track athletes. After two days of building we handed the keys to the family and Christian, the youngest child, had the opportunity to wear Esther Lofgren's gold medal. It was a memory that he will never forget.
We visited the family last week and they're still living in their home. The family is thriving and doing better than ever. Christian looks back on the home build as a turning point in his life where he could begin to dream. #thepowerofhope #hopesports

"Just beyond their medals and the post-Olympic exhibition tours and commemorative cereal boxes looms a hurdle they don’t see coming: everyday life."

it's easy to think that you are worth more when you perform & when you win- but you have a greater purpose. #hopesports

Olympic Gold Medalist, Brandon Slay, wrote a letter to Olympians encouraging athletes to find a deeper purpose to sport than winning.

"Why are you doing this?

If you’re competing just to win you’re going to be disappointed either way. Defeat is devastating, and victory is fleeting."
