The Saint Sebastian Sports Project was founded in 2008 by Jim and Clare Gurbach. Their kids played in CYO leagues. They noticed kids from other under-resourced areas in Los Angeles had amazing talent, but lacked the basics of uniforms and equipment. The Gurbach’s established Saint Sebastian Sports Project as a way to level the playing field raising funds for these under-resourced areas.
Now, the Saint Sebastian Sports Project supports sports programs in over 20 Catholic elementary schools in and around the Los Angeles Archdiocese. Hundreds of Catholic school students across the southland have had the opportunity to experience the fun– and the life lessons– that come from being a member of a sports team.
We are excited for one of the founders, Clare Gurbach, to be joining us for Change The Game. You can find more information on the Saint Sebastian Sports project here.
