Leveling the playing field

MO SP 5P N PKG LEVEL PLAYING FIELD

There are many benefits for young kids playing sports, but what happens when a young athlete can't afford to play? That is a problem local nonprofit "Leveling The Playing Field" based in Silver Spring, MD has set out to solve.

Studies show that students who participate in athletics have higher grade point averages, attendance rates, standardized test scores, educational aspirations and healthier habits.

Leveling The Playing Field founder Max Levitt has been able to give more than $1 million in sporting equipment to kids in need and boost sports participation.
