About the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation:

The Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by Chicago Cubs First Baseman Anthony Rizzo. Anthony realized during his own battle with cancer that no matter how difficult fighting cancer was for him, it was even more difficult for his family. Anthony believes that an individual does not battle cancer alone, but that the whole family battles it together. The Mission of the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation is to raise money for cancer research and to provide support to children and their families battling the disease. The Foundation is run entirely by Anthony’s family, his close friends and his management team with Anthony providing oversight and leadership. All of us at the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation believe that every family deserves a fighting chance.

Palm Beach and Broward Youth Go the Distance with Pop Warner Football and Cheer

The 2018 season has been an especially exciting one for the youth football players and cheerleaders in Boca Raton, Florida.  The Boca Braves, a non-profit Pop-Warner youth league, has had four of their football teams make it to the Pop-Warner Superbowl playoffs this season, and all three of their cheer squads are advancing to the Southeast Regional Pop-Warner Cheer Competition in Orlando at the end of November.
This past weekend, their Junior Varsity football team played  in the second round of Superbowl playoffs at Tropical Park in Miami at 4 pm.  While some Palm Beach and Broward leagues receive city funding, the Boca Braves rely on registration fees, fundraising and the support of local organizations to pay for travel costs, field permits, referees, uniforms, and equipment.  With over 35% of their players receiving full or partial scholarships to cover registration, funding needs continue to be a challenge.
“This league does more than coach football and cheer,” explains Mark Sainmervil, President of the Boca Braves.  “We teach discipline, sportsmanship, and the importance of teamwork.  Plus, youth sports give our children a much-needed outlet.”
To support the Boca Braves, consider donating to their GoFundMe page, or visit BocaBraves.com to inquire about sponsorship and volunteer positions.
About the Boca Braves:
Boca Braves Pop Warner Youth Tackle Football & Cheerleading is a non-profit organization that serves almost 150 of Palm Beach and Broward County youth aged 5 to 15 years old. The league seeks to provide fun athletic learning opportunities for children while emphasizing the importance of academic success.  Specifically, Pop Warner seeks to familiarize players and spirit participants with the fundamentals of tackle football, cheerleading, and dance. Pop Warner strives to inspire youth, regardless of race, creed or national origin, to practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship and physical fitness as reflected in the life of the late Glenn Scobie “Pop” Warner.
