On January 7. 1999 at the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego, California, Garth Brooks along with Major League Baseball players Tony Gwynn, Jason Kendall, Brian Hunter, and Wally Joyner announced at a national press conference the formation of the Touch’em All Foundation. The Foundation would later change it’s name to the Teammates For Kids Foundation and in 20 years has generated almost $120 million in cash, scholarships and gifts in kind, to help children in all 50 states, 10 Canadian Provinces and more than 60 countries around the world.

Our thanks to the more than 4,500 professional athletes, the numerous private and corporate donors and friends who have stepped up to help make a difference in the lives of countless numbers of children in need.
