Impacting the National Conversation on Youth Sports
Even before becoming 2-4-1 CARE, 2-4-1 Sports participated in spreading the message of Sport Sampling and Physical Literacy alongside First Lady Michelle Obama. Mrs. Obama’s message aligned with 2-4-1's life philosophy on the importance of play and healthy nutrition.
In her speech Mrs. Obama shared, "We're not developing our next generation of kids and competitors..." She and her brother Craig (a former Division 1 Basketball Coach now with the NY Knicks organization) went on to share their joy of playing multiple sports growing up in Chicago.
