Leveling the Playing Field: How to Get Involved

By Tonka Dobreva 11.17.2016 interact

For many children, participating in any kind of sport they desire is a given. If you can buy the sporting equipment you need, you can easily enjoy all different kinds of athletic activities. But for some kids, sporting opportunities are out of reach because they don’t have access to the necessary equipment.

Max Levitt and his non-profit Leveling the Playing Field are on a mission to change that. Max believes that every child should have access to sports.

Since its conception in 2011, the initiative has provided 70,000 sporting items — baseball bats, gloves, bags– worth nearly $2 million, to more than 300 leagues and schools in Washington D.C., Virginia and Maryland.

    Every kid has a desire to play a certain sport. I think it is nice to donate sports items because some people can’t pay for sports items like a baseball bat.
