9th Annual Joetta Clark Diggs Sports Foundation Gala A Huge Success Featured

The 9th Annual Joetta Clark Diggs Sports Foundation (www.joettasportsandbeyond.com) Gala was indeed “Magical”.

 

This year marked the 12th consecutive year that the Foundation has brought fitness programs, knowledge, joy and inspiration to children throughout the State of New Jersey. This year the foundation will introduce and provide Financial & Fitness initiatives to schools throughout the Tri-State area.

 

Joetta writes, “As a four-time Olympian, I have often been described as the epitome of athletic fitness, focus, and fearlessness. However, what is not mentioned is that my athletic and academic success started at a very young age and continued for over three decades. Today I see a very different picture with our youth. It seems that often academic excellence, athletic involvement and community services have taken a back seat to many of the current day distractions. These observations caused me great concern. In 2002 I formed The Joetta Clark Diggs Sports Foundation, Inc. which is committed to teaching good health and positive work ethics, life skills, participation in sports and the introduction of the different opportunities for girls and boys in the sports and entertainment industry. The Foundation believes that we must continue to provide hope and solutions as we address the inactivity and health concerns with our youth."

 

Scholarships were awarded for high academic standards, athletic and community interest by the Joetta Geniuses Scholarship.

 

The benefit gave tribute to great athletes who have been exemplary people on and off the field. Appreciation was also expressed to the corporate sponsors who have demonstrated strong leadership abilities and extraordinary commitment to youngsters and the community.
