NEW YORK –September 8, 2016— MISSION, the world’s leader in Thermoregulation technologies, today announced the winners of The M Awards, which recognizes “Athletes on a Mission” – high school student-athletes who are role models in their communities through their service to others.
The M Awards includes a Gold Award winner ($5,000 grant), Silver Award winner ($2,500 grant) and Bronze Award winner ($1,000 grant) who each receive a charitable grant made out to the community non-profit of their choice. MISSION ambassadors including Serena Williams, Dwyane Wade, Drew Brees, Carli Lloyd, David Villa, Reggie Bush and others are involved in selecting The M Award recipients.
Keeley Scott, a seventeen year old high school senior lacrosse and tennis player from Garden City, NY with a 4.0 GPA, is the recipient of the Gold M Award. She chose to donate MISSION’s $5,000 grant to The Andy Foundation, which is a high school program that helps organize fundraisers to raise money for children’s charities. She is also very involved with Challenger Lacrosse, which is an organization that gives children with special needs an opportunity to play lacrosse. She wants to spread her love of lacrosse to other children who do not have the opportunity to play it in their schools. MISSION celebrated her as their Gold M Award winner during the NYCFC game held at Yankee Stadium on July 30, 2016. MISSION Partner and NYCFC Captain David Villa presented her a check made out to The Andy Foundation.
