Iowa 7on7 Football recently received a $5,000 grant from the Hunter Aaron Vondran Memorial Foundation. Thanks to this grant, Iowa 7on7 Football will be able to provide 20 half scholarships to athletes in need. This will continue to increase participation and exposure in our local youth athletes.

The HAVlife grant focuses on at risk youth, ages 10-15, residing in Johnson County.

This follows their mission’s statement which involves preventing lost potential in youth through support of participation in athletics. Their vision enhances this goal to allow all youth to experience life in the fullest through exposure to the community.
Quote From Organization Program Coordinator On How This Grant/Program Will Increase/Expand Lifesaving
“Thanks to HAVlife, this grant will allow us to give many kids the opportunity to play when they might not have had the chance otherwise. We are grateful for the ability to do these types of acts in the community, and we look forward to being able to give back as much as we can in the future” (Cole Davis).
Why This Program Is Important To The Community And Lifesaving.
We believe that Iowa 7on7 Football will continue to grow in the Midwest and reach every community. Being able to support youth athletes that need financial help increases the outreach that our program has and allows us to extend our organization to be able to help even more kids. We hope to continue to support our local communities while also bringing the 7on7 game to many other new areas.
