Classroom Champions

Company Description

When Lex Gillette was only eight years old, he lost his eyesight. His ability to see was gone, but his tunnel vision toward greatness never subsided. He is the current world record holder in the long jump, a four-time Paralympic medalist, a three-time long jump world champion, and an 18-time national champion. He is the only totally blind athlete to ever eclipse the 22-foot barrier in the long jump.

Lex Gillette can teach your students about perseverance.

Classroom Champions is a non-profit dedicated to connecting students with world-class athlete mentors.

Students participating in Classroom Champions see significant improvements in the classroom, teachers see improved engagement, and athlete mentors learn new skills to prepare for life after sport.
