We are so #thankful and #blessed and #honored to receive a $1,000 grant from Gatorade’s Play It Forward program, which was awarded to our very own Jackson Sparks Foundation by Waterford's Dylan Questad, Gatorade Wisconsin's 2023 Baseball Player of the Year.
We are so honored that Dylan and his family would think of our foundation, and so happy that he wants to help us in our mission to "make baseball dreams come true" for children who have endured trauma such as losing a loved one or a life-threatening illness or critical injury, all in Jackson's memory.
Thank you so much Dylan! We are all so proud of all you have accomplished. We know this is just the beginning!
