At BARWIS, we have a deep desire to utilize our resources and relationships to help those in need in the most practical, tangible ways possible. The Athletic Angels Foundation was born from this desire, started years ago by Mike Barwis in his days as a collegiate strength coach when he would develop relationships with impoverished kids who lived near the football stadium. He would connect them with his athletes, ensure they received gifts and food during the holiday season, and provide ways for them to experience joy and mentorship with high-profile role models. Today, Athletic Angels not only continues these traditions but also has ongoing relationships with foster care facilities, hosts weekly training sessions and exciting large-scale seasonal events for youth, and distributes athletic scholarships to underprivileged youth.
