The Jimmy Core Foundation

Jimmy Core played lacrosse at Ardrey Kell HS & Florida State was one of the “original Cyclones” and played in just about every StickWithUs program including Team Carolina. Jimmy passed tragically from a swimming accident in 2016. The Jimmy CORE Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in the spirit of its namesake. Jimmy Core was committed to helping homeless people eat a full meal in the communities in which he lived and worked.

The Heroes Bowl in support of MISSION 34

Mission 34 is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose goal is to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illness through awareness, education, and communication.  It aims to do this by providing speakers and education to high school and college-aged students about the signs of depression, increasing awareness for suicide prevention and overall mental wellness. 

Mission 34 was organized in honor and loving memory of Sean P. Bonner, Jr., #34 on Denison’s Baseball team, who died by suicide at age 20 on November 7, 2018.  Sean was an intelligent, loving, and caring friend to so many people. He was big and strong, but unbeknownst to his friends and family, Sean suffered from mental illness.

The Heroes Bowl in support of Salute to Heroes Foundation

In 2022 the StickWithUs Organization founded the Heroes Bowl in support of the Salute to Heroes Charlotte Charitable Foundation. Salute to Heroes Charlotte Foundation assists members of public safety in their time of need. When 911 is called, public safety members show up with no questions asked. When a public safety member or their family is in need, the Salute to Heroes Charlotte Foundation responds to help assist with no questions asked.
