Nonprofit organization based out of Wildwood, NJ

Who We Are & Our Mission:

We are a nonprofit organization based out of Wildwood, NJ (helping mostly Cape May County and surrounding areas), that provides athletic equipment and other necessities to local student-athletes and families in need of financial assistance. Our mission is to motivate and inspire kids at an early age to be a part of something special. Growing up, my dad used to tell my sisters and I "poise and confidence" when we were playing basketball. I feel as if this relates to all of life. I want to share this with others through acts of service in the community. This is me playing the game I love at an early age.

Our Why

Our Story

Growing up, my mom was (and still is) a teacher and my dad was a liquor salesman and basketball coach (and still is). I have always admired how much my mom loves her job and how she has always gone the extra mile for her students. I've always wanted to be just like my dad. He has a way about him that just makes people feel important, safe, and like they belong. Through being a basketball coach for roughly 20 years, I've watched my dad go the extra mile for his players time and time again. This included sometimes getting kids a pair of basketball shoes when they couldn't afford it or buying kids a couple new pairs of clothes when they could not afford that either. When I got to high school, I really started to notice firsthand how much of a need there actually was, particularly through my sports teams. I was blessed enough to have graduated from Wildwood High School as a 2,000 point scorer and the valedictorian of my class. I was so grateful for my time there and wanted to do something to give back. In April of 2019, a couple months before I graduated from high school, I started the Step Back Foundation so I could give back to a community that has given so much to me.
