Update on Real Good Sports: Today we are posting our last few stories on RealGoodSports.com. For the past year and a half we have covered several stories of inspiration from leading athletes nationwide. We are grateful to all those that have supported and collaborated with us. We are taking this time to re-evaluate the site and how we can better serve our readers.
Real Good Sports
Comprised of independent journalists and freelancers, RealGoodSports.com takes the reader behind the scenes of professional sports by highlighting the impact professional athletes and sports personalities have on their communities and globally.
If you would like us to let us know about your foundation’s upcoming events or initiatives or if you have been impacted by an athlete or charity and would like to tell us about it, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
