Champions for Life, Inc. is a non-profit organization operating
at multiple sites throughout Central New York, from
Everest Park in Owasco, to the CFL Sports Center in Auburn.

  • We operate the Brian Bisgrove Home of Courage, where families who have children with life threatening illnesses or debilitating conditions can experience weekends of rest and respite, at no cost to the family.

  • We support CNY United, Central New York's soccer team for wheelchair-bound athletes.

  • We operate the Champions for Life Sports Center, where we provide scholarships to children and families who want to participate in programming but cannot afford to, run a program that matches children with developmental disabilities with mentors to work on social development, physical strength, coordination, and any other goals that child wants to work on, offer the only indoor tennis courts in Cayuga County that are open to the public, and have recreational and competitive programming for athletes in a variety of sports.

  • We administer all of the LOFTY programming in Central New York, from Lead in 5 in the elementary schools to Blueprint 2 in the junior high, to a newly developing leadership curriculum at AHS, as well as a week of leadership training every summer for children enrolled at Booker T Washington Community Center.

  • We run Everest Park, where the Finger Lakes Lacrosse and Soccer tournaments are held annually, as well as clinics with nationally recognized coaching staff, the Easter Spirit 5K, and other camps and programs. At Everest, we also have the Everest Park Pavilion, available as a location for weddings, reunions, and parties, and 160 acres of fields, woods, hills, and streams for hiking, biking, and being in nature.
