Imagine changing even just one person's understanding of what they are capable of becoming. This is at the heart of the More2Life experience.

Our mission is to inspire disadvantaged youth by engaging them in
life mentoring, educational and athletic opportunities.

Our Initiatives

Famed educator Rita Pierson was passionate in her belief that every child deserves a champion, someone who won’t give up on them, who believes in the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be. This belief is at the heart of the More To Life Foundation. Our year-round initiatives have been designed to reach children across the country and provide opportunities and connections to help empower them to reach their full potential in life.

Check here for the latest updates on recent More To Life events including insights from those who participated and the kids themselves.

In partnership with BYU Football, More To Life sponsors the team’s “True Blue Hero” program to benefit children who are bravely facing adversity in their life.
