"Giving back brings purpose and a sense of fulfillment to my life. Seeing the fruits of giving fills me with joy and it always is somewhat of a transformational experience if I can make a difference in someone else life. Giving back makes me feel whole and alive." - Philipp


"HopeSports is work, its hard work, but the rewards are so much greater than what I put in. The home build touches something deep inside of me that, contrary to the world of Sports, it’s not about earning, but giving. I get this sense of fulfillment by doing it in a practical way and see it transform a life in only one weekend. So often in sports we have to look at ourselves and what we need to do on our own to improve, but at the homebuilt it is about what I can do for the family and the others around me. Taking these principles and trying to apply them in sports and day to day life is brings purpose and joy." - Philipp Juhn
