ABOUT US

In three years, Walk Off Charities has made massive strides in size and scope with its programs thanks to our donors!  Here’s the highlights from this past year:

  • FREE youth baseball leagues each spring for 200 children, each one getting their own glove, with 90 percent getting to play an organized season for the first time

  • More than 2,400 third graders have gone through our clinics as a field trip thanks to our partnership with Duval County Public Schools

  • Each child at the clinic received their own glove while being introduced to the sport by some of the top high school coaches in the area

  • Walk Off will be hosting it's third high school baseball tournament in February, with twelve teams competing at Sans Souci Park and the championship games were televised

  • Gave gloves and a new pitching machine to the youth baseball teams at Grand Park

What does Walk Off have in store for the next academic year?​

  • Expanding the free baseball leagues to other parks and associations while offering a discount for players returning from this year

  • More clinics to further our outreach in the community, with each kid continuing to get a glove to take home

  • Introducing in-school clinics where we take our field trip model and go into schools in underserved areas

  • Building more partnerships within the youth sports community to encourage participation, but also assist in marketing to parents
