Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities Back to School Program
Each August Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities partners with the Dallas Independent School District to serve its most underprivileged at-risk children and families by providing new school uniforms, fresh fruits and vegetables for each family, children’s books, dental screenings and more. To date, 13,000 families in the Dallas community have received the benefits made possible by partner donations. Thanks to Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities’ partners, we have been able to provide these services and more for $18 per child. Imagine what your contribution can do. Please join us in helping the children in Dallas Independent School District start their school year on a high note, with the support of TEAM 22 Cycling behind them.

Today’s teens face innumerable challenges – and they can better meet those challenges by using the principles of personal development, goal setting, dream building, time management and a sense of purpose. RockTeen Youth foundation leverages peer mentorship to motivate kids and keep them off the streets and out of gangs. RockTeen participants learn how to build themselves up and prepare for the workforce – moving beyond their constrictive environments and towards lifelong success.
