The Thorpe Team of 100 is a unique and incredibly vital campaign opportunity within the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame. Our purpose is to encourage excellence through sports, academics, health and fitness; preserving our sports heritage, while building pride in the spirit of Jim Thorpe. How we reach our purpose begins with just one.
Did you know that your Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame operates the largest drug free initiative in Oklahoma? With the challenge our state’s schoolchildren face when it comes to drugs, alcohol, tobacco and vaping, we are committed to bringing greater attention to this astonishing epidemic. We actively work with over 2,000 public and private schools across Oklahoma through our Red Ribbon and Bright Path Youth Programs.
For nearly two decades, through your support, we have been able to annually fund this initiative by utilizing net proceeds from our other annual events. Because we receive no funding from the state for any of these initiatives, our goal is to take the net proceeds from this year’s Thorpe Team of 100 event and, not only, fund our 2020 programs, but expand our exposure in hopes of reaching beyond the ~11,000 children that sign annual pledges to be drug, alcohol and tobacco free.
As a member of the Thorpe Team of 100, you are partnering with us to help make a difference in the lives of thousands of school children across Oklahoma. By being one of the one hundred, you will be sowing into all of our treasured youth programs; including, Bright Path, the Children’s Challenge and, as mentioned above, Oklahoma’s largest drug free initiative, Red Ribbon.
