DESERVES THE CHANCE TO PLAY BASEBALL
At Walk Off Charities, we believe that every child deserves the chance to play baseball. Outside of the physical aspect of the sport, baseball provides a great platform to help children develop mentally, socially, and emotionally. With our programs, we hope to make a positive impact on the lives of youth in northeast Florida.
Our mission is to provide opportunities, resources, and access to the game of baseball for any youth that desires to learn or play.
Our vision is to become the most impactful baseball-centric non-profit in our city that provides youth pathways to success.
Our focus is on introducing youth to the sport, creating play opportunities, providing equipment, and upgrading facilities.
Since 2017, we have been able to impact nearly 5,000 youth through various events and programs, centered around baseball.
Over 3,000 third grade students have attended our clinics and received a free baseball glove, thanks to our partnership with Duval County Public Schools (DCPS) and top area coaches
More than 1,200 youth have been able to play for FREE in a league, 90% playing in an organized season for the first time
Over 800 area high school players have participated in our preseason baseball tournament, with the final games televised
Through partnerships with the city of Jacksonville, corporate and private donations, we have been able to invest over $300,000 in field renovations or facility upgrades
We have partnered with 10+ local parks/leagues to assist in creating a better league experience for participants
Our goal is to continue to support the growth of baseball by breaking down socio-economic barriers for entry, experience, and exposure providing youth access and opportunity for development.
