Updated: Apr 13, 2020

Our annual look at professional athletes that are giving back to their communities

Whole Health Athletics is a hub for everything new and innovative in the sports world. We also love to give props to athletes that understand that they are not bigger than the game they play. Professional athletes are role models and have a large influence over their fans. Here is our annual list of athletes giving back to a cause close to their hearts. #prolanthropy

The Let Them Play Foundation is a chance to fund opportunities for play and raise awareness of the plight of inactivity facing our children. There is a direct correlation between the degree of fitness a child has and their cognitive ability, their test scores, their academic success. We know from studies that if you don’t play, your brain is smaller. Play is essential. Learn more at @ltpfoundation @ebrynes22 #mlb #letthemplay #ericbyrnes #play


The mission of the Russell Westbrook Why Not? Foundation is to inspire the lives of children, empower them to ask “Why Not?” and teach them to never give up.

The foundation works to help children that are facing hardships of any kind and when faced with that adversity fight to succeed and to never give up. Russell Westbrook and his brother were taught to ask “Why Not?” every time they were told they could not do something. It is this encouragement and strength that Russell and his family want to spread to children across the country. Founded in 2012, the Russell Westbrook Why Not? Foundation is dedicated to supporting community based education and family service programs while encouraging youth to believe in themselves.
