|About||The SD Project is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization created to bring hope to struggling children in our sports communities throughout the U.S and abroad.|
|Mission||The SD Project seeks out at risk athletes throughout the United States and abroad who are hindered by the repercussions of poverty, or those who battle mental or physical disability.
