Team TWard3 needs your help with providing new athletic shoes for kids, all ages, in K-12 at selected schools. We have partnered again with ShoesThatFit.org to help children have the shoes they need to thrive in the classroom and beyond. No child should have to go to school with torn up shoes or shoes that don’t fit. Together, we can change that story for many kids and their families.
A donation in honor of Coach Ward to shoesthatfit.org is a wonderful way to honor an extraordinary person, who loved shoes, and touched the lives of so many while making the world a better place.
We had yet another successful campaign in 2020; providing 240 pairs of brand new athletic shoes to kids from two schools—one Birmingham area school and one in Bloomington, Illinois.
Torrey played college basketball at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB); before moving on to a brief professional basketball career in China. Coaching and helping develop young student-athletes became Torrey’s calling and professional career. He served as Assistant Coach for Men’s Basketball at Ole Miss and Jacksonville State University before heading to Illinois State University to join Dan Muller’s (Head Coach) staff. Torrey was Associate Head Coach at ISU when he passed away in April, 2015.
