Group One Thousand One Presents Power Of Sports
Monthly segments will share inspiring stories of people, organizations and communities connecting through sports to create opportunities for youth to join teams and find the motivator they need to go to school, stay in school and prepare for life beyond the classroom. Power of Sports will help show what's possible when people work together for the greater good of others.
Hosted by sports industry insider Rick Horrow, Power of Sports will take viewers into conversations with influential thought leaders to understand how different sports and business organizations are engaging America's youth to help drive positive social change.
"I am constantly amazed at the innovation taking place to better serve people and communities in need. As we consider stories for Power of Sports, we are humbled by the sacrifice and investment we see happening everywhere we go," says Horrow, an executive producer of the show.
Group One Thousand One CEO Dan Towriss commented, "In the realm of sports there are so many inspiring and untold stories that need a place to be told. We hope that Power of Sports provides the platform to celebrate these amazing stories, both professional and amateur, with the simple goal of inspiring others to step forward."
Added Towriss, "Earlier this year, our Delaware Life team made the decision to go all in with support for Fields & Futures, a local nonprofit in Oklahoma City. The scope of this effort encompasses a comprehensive and sustainable rebuild of all 42 athletic fields in Oklahoma's largest school district, a district that serves more than 46,000 students from predominantly high poverty neighborhoods. The desired outcome is a bigger opportunity and a brighter future for each kid that steps on the field, court or track. Power of Sports has been created to tell these stories and to remind us there are children all across the country who, if given a chance, want to get in the game. It is our hope this show will help inspire and empower viewers to find ways they can help."
