As GamePlan continues to flourish and grow–thanks entirely to generous donations–we are gaining more and more momentum to change lives. The mission of GamePlan is to ensure that “at need” student athletes are provided with personal development and life skills. Our multi-level program geared toward high school student athletes sets them up to succeed at the Game of Life. GamePlan offers mentoring, motivational assemblies, regular seminars, college scholarships. The organization also offers a two day college program for all high school athletes. From the beginning, Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine has been a valuable partner in positively equipping and impacting young athletes. Going beyond funding, Beacon has helped recruit other donors and get the word out to key players in the local athletic community. A staple of Cincinnati sports, Beacon Orthopaedics is an integral part, and a valued partner, of GamePlan. Interested in learning more?
