Talk about a project with heart and purpose! Fields & Futures was founded in 2012 by Liz and Tim McLaughlin, with the support of the McLaughlin Family Foundation and myriad other private and community partners, to help Oklahoma City Public Schools Athletics rebuild 44 athletic fields and help write a better story for the children of Oklahoma City.
The mission: Grow student participation in organized sports and in the process:
· Improve graduation rates by using sports as a motivator to Inspire improved attendance and academic performance.
· Reduce coaching turnover by empowering coaches with new, improved resources and ongoing professional development.
· Build stronger, healthier communities by providing athletic fields to encourage active lifestyles and outdoor play.
Brand Talkers is helping raise funds for Fields & Futures through corporate sponsorship and strategic business relationships. If you or your business would like to be involved in positively impacting thousands of OKCPS students, and being part of this life-changing project, we'd love to talk.
"These invaluable moments motivate and teach us - they shape our character ... and without a field, there is no game and without a game, there is no moment."
Let's give the children of Oklahoma City an opportunity to experience their defining moment.
FIELDS & FUTURES - THE SONG
Lyrics and Music by Mikah Young
My mind is set, my eyes are clear
The old regret has no place here
The shattered glass has long since gone
We've seen it pass and we've moved on
Let them be a part of something bigger than themselves
Let them find the strength to find their way
'Cause they've got something that is unlike anyone else
Let us build their fields and futures day by day
The shadowland, the broken earth
Don't understand just what it's worth
We found a home, we found a spark
We're not alone out in the dark
Out on this field we're all a part
Of what could heal this city's heart
Our time has come and we're on fire
Our voice as one be lifted higher
