ZogSports Makes A Difference – Charity Update Spring 2015

Jpeg

ZogSports was founded in the wake of 9/11, so giving back is a vital element of our organization.  Since our launch in 2002, we’ve donated over $2.7 million to hundreds of different charities.  When you play ZogSports, you’re contributing – we donate 10% of all net proceeds, 100% of Happy Hour bar contributions and 100% of net proceeds from ZSAANYC leagues to charities that you pick.

Last season, in NYC alone, we donated over $36,000 to over 150 different charities.  It’s always amazing to see the tremendous variety of causes that ZogSports teams choose to support, from small, local organizations like The Bronx Defenders to national, well-established charities like the American Heart Association.  Whatever charity your team selects to play for, you can enjoy the friendly competition and organized fun knowing that you’re making a difference somewhere in the world.

Here are the top 5 most selected charities from the Spring 2015 season:

Highlight of the Week – Who’s Got Spirit?

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“I’m the captain of the only kickball team that went completely winless last season. That may sound like a bad title to hold, but I actually couldn’t be happier! My teammates have said that playing those games was some of the most fun they have ever had, and honestly that’s all I want for them. Sure, we try to win, but fun comes first. And we got the Team Spirit award! This season, though, we won our first game! And we have custom shirts! And an instagram account! Follow us @n3rdstnerds for fun action shots and post-game interviews.”

Highlight of the Week – Unbreakable Bonds

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“Everyone is constantly making connections that carry over both personally and professionally, and forming lasting friendships. Our team (Woo Tang) is a mix of people who mostly had never met before, and through Zog, we’ve developed unbreakable bonds that have made us a team with strong chemistry and group of friends who love spending time together. We’ve made so many memories together, and value all the eating, drinking, dancing, and laughing at happy hour as much as we do winning games on the football field.”
