What is Fantasy Sports 4 Life?
Fantasy Sports 4 Life, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is the first fantasy sports platform dedicated to one charitable cause. We are a group of forward-thinking, passionate individuals who recognized an innovative way to fill in the gaps in funding for COPD research while at the same time spreading awareness. By targeting dual audiences – fantasy sports enthusiasts and the healthcare community – we seek to use what is becoming the newest national pastime to fund and help solve a global health care problem. While major for-profit companies are using the booming, multi-billion dollar fantasy sports industry in their global marketing mixes to capitalize, our vision is to use fantasy sports for social good.
What is COPD?
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) refers to a group of diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing-related problems. It includes emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and in some cases asthma. It is the 3rd leading cause of death in the US and the 4th worldwide, yet few people have ever heard of it. Over 24 million Americans are afflicted with COPD; however, more than half remain undiagnosed. COPD research and awareness is grossly underfunded and Fantasy Sports 4 Life aims to change this through the power of fantasy sports.
I don’t play fantasy sports. Is there another way I can get involved?
We appreciate any donations. 100% of your donation will help fund COPD research and awareness. If you would like to get involved and join our team, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always looking for corporate sponsors and partners as well.
