A message From Our Founder


Greater Than the Game is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit dedicated to motivating all people to strive harder and be stronger than they ever thought possible. Our mission is to uplift people through sport and encourage them to become their personal best. We do this by highlighting athletes, across the spectrum of sports, who are working hard to achieve goals many thought were impossible or who are working to positively impact their community. 

Greater Than the Game produces digital content that: 

  • tells personal stories of athletes who embody triumph over adversity, 
  • challenges ideas of human capability, and, 
  • furthers the positive impact of sports on individuals, families and society at large.

Our organization is guided by three principles: 1) Be authentic, 2) Be aspirational and 3) Be positive. These values drive every article, podcast and social post, and motivate us to be a leader in the field of positive sports media.
