Our newest Purple Paladin: 

Alley-Oop Kids

Increasing sports equity for youth around the world, one Lending Locker at a time

 

At just 15 years old, Rishan Patel founded Alley-Oop Kids to help bring the benefits of sports to more kids. By providing under-resourced schools and youth organizations with sports equipment, a space to store it and ongoing support, Alley-Oop Kids is on a mission to increase sports equity for youth around the world, one Lending Locker at a time.
