What a way to kick off a Friday morning! 🏈

Building Dreams Breakfast

Today, we got to recognize, celebrate, and hear from so many wonderful people who are changing lives through the Fight for Life Foundation at their first-ever Building Dreams Champions Breakfast!

While enjoying a delicious breakfast at the Indianapolis Colts’ training facility, everyone got the opportunity to learn more about Fight for Life through family impact stories, hear from former Colts player, Marlin Jackson himself, and more! We also had the opportunity to take a tour the Building Dreams software through interactive stations that focus on emotion identification and management as well as a realistic simulation of the how the technology can be used brought to you by Jackson and his children!

As of June 2023, there are over 6,000 Indianapolis-based students using the Building Dreams platform, either through their school or in connection with a youth organization they’re a part of.

During the breakfast ceremony, the foundation recognized eight individuals for their work in the Indianapolis public education system through Building Dreams.

  • Tihesha Henderson, Sankofa School of Success, Head of School
