Good Sports: GIVING KIDS A “CHANCE FOR SPORTS”

Anuva Shandilya, a senior at Neuqua Valley High School in Naperville, Illinois, has played a variety of sports in her life and doesn’t take the opportunity for granted. Having visited 24 countries, she knows that sports equipment is unaffordable for many children around the world. That’s why, three years ago, she founded Chance for Sports, a nonprofit organization that collects gently used sports equipment for needy children.

So far, the organization has collected more than 3,400 pieces of sports equipment, worth about $32,500, to distribute to children in the United States and four other countries: India, Zambia, Haiti, and Mexico.

She has handed out some of the equipment herself, during trips to India and Mexico. “I like to do it personally,” she told The Daily Herald, adding that “there are so many kids who don’t have the same opportunities as me.”
