the Game On! Foundation mission

The Yasso Game On! Foundation is a 501c3 with a mission to inspire health and happiness in people of all ages, providing tools and resources to communities in need to encourage movement. Born from our founders’ roots in athletics, we believe everyone should have access to opportunities to live a healthier life.

our recent work

This year, we’ve joined forces with Can’d Aid to donate 1,000 bikes to youth nationwide. Yasso & Can’d Aid are hosting public bike builds in 10 cities across the country, engaging volunteers and local communities to help inspire and empower the recipients of these bikes, 1,000 elementary age kids, to lead healthy and active lives.

We’re also proud partners with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston and Metro Denver, helping serve their youth members.
