BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Back in the spring of 2014, Hibbett Sports and WIAT 42 teamed up for a special segment we call “One Team at a Time”. Now, it’s time to gear up for what we’ve got in store for 2015.
One Team at a Time has really taken off. Hibbett Sports has distributed $40,000 worth of equipment to teams all around central Alabama. We’re talking football, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, volleyball, and the list goes on. Why? Because Hibbett Sports and WIAT 42 wanted to recognize teams that spend countless hours not only learning the game, but learning life lessons. Whether it is a new football, new shin guards, or a new bat, kids are able to see their dreams become a reality.
Mary Chambliss of the Moody Miracle League told us, “One of the little players, she had told me this year she would make a homerun because she got a new purple bat from Hibbetts. So those kind of things make you appreciate the new equipment and the self esteem
that it builds in these children.”
That’s just one example of the lives that are being touched by Hibbett Sports and their generous outreach. $1000 worth of brand new equipment can go a long way, so get your team in the game. Fill out a nomination form and wishlist here and maybe you can be our next One Team at a Time.
