Safe and Sound just got safer and sounder

Safe and Sound just got safer and sounder

Sounder financially, that is. Thanks to a first-time grant from the Play It Forward Award Fund, Safe and Sound 4 Student Success — affectionately known as S4 — is $5,000 stronger. The Play It Forward Award Fund believes “Positive experiences in sport and physical activity are critical to developing healthy kids and building healthy communities”; we couldn’t agree more. And we don’t stop there.

Instead, S4 participants alternate fantastic soccer play with challenging academic study so young minds and bodies thrive and grow. These kids alternate teamwork, footwork, and homework in one of the Beaverton Education Foundation’s most successful programs, and results last well into the school year and beyond. We’re proud that Play It Forward saw fit to support this successful, innovative program. This is our first grant from this funder and the only grant they awarded in May– the Oregon Sports Authority — and we want to welcome it to BEF’s growing family of sponsors and funders. So when you see Beaverton’s kids having a great time out on the field, give them a wave and yell: “S4!” (Or, if you see them while studying, “S4” sounds great in a whisper, too.)
