Devon Teeple will contribute $2 for every kilometer that he runs in the month of December (1st to 20th) to raise awareness for mental health and to support local families over the holidays
North Bay, Dec 1, 2020 (Issuewire.com) – Award-winning entrepreneur, athletic professional, and mental health advocate Devon Teeple continues to raise awareness for mental health. For every kilometer that he runs during the month of December, he will donate the collective amount to North Bay Santa Fund.
“This year has been especially difficult. Hopefully this will make Christmas a little brighter for families and their children.” said Teeple.
Devon is the founder of ignite CHANGE, a non-profit community organization that combines performance baseball coaching and mentorship with mental health awareness. It is specifically tailored to playing baseball the right way by integrating components of leadership, attitude, and behaviors. He is also the Founder and Executive Director of TheGMsPerspective.com, a site dedicated to the business and operations side of baseball at all levels (MLB, Minor, and Independent Leagues) in Canada, the US, and wherever the game is played.
“Baseball has been a huge part of my life. The game provides extreme highs and lows and has taught me to be humble. Since the conclusion of my professional baseball career, I have participated in multiple internship and volunteer positions and have founded The GM’s Perspective and newly created ignite CHANGE as an outlet to help others,” said Teeple.
