Lelito’s Legacy Foundation was created by St. Clair native, now professional football player; Tim Lelito for the sole purpose of helping kids without the financial means to participate in sports. Growing up, sports were a major part of Tim’s life. Raised by his grandparents, they found themselves many times struggling to get the money for him and his siblings to stay in sports. Tim commends sports for helping him get through High School and become the first person in his immediate family to graduate.
Tim says, “Sports can become a vehicle to further education. It also teaches athletes valuable life lessons like accountability, hard work, determination and persistence. Through these opportunities kids can learn to grow up and conquer any obstacles in their way.”
This Foundation helps children and young adults that are not financially blessed though want to have a better future. Taking care of things like Pay-to-play charges, equipment and transportation are just some of the things that we help provide.
