Our mission is to better the quality of life by connecting children with physical and developmental disabilities, chronic and life threatening illnesses and economic hardship with all levels of competitive sports teams. All TU41 programs promote inclusion, teamwork, education and fun.


Fun is placed high on our priority list. Whether it's a day at the zoo or attending a baseball game, we ensure everyone has the opportunity to have a great time!

About us

The Team Up For 1 Foundation (TU41) connects children with challenges to the experience of team sports by matching them up with sports teams at the collegiate and high school level. TU41 also hosts group outings with professional sports teams such as the Baltimore Orioles and Baltimore Ravens and holds the annual Team Up For Toys drive each year to share the magic of giving with students from special needs schools in economically challenged neighborhoods during the holiday season.

The Team Up For 1 Foundation is a charity committed to improving the quality of life for children with physical and developmental disabilities, chronic or life threatening illnesses and economic hardship. Our programs are always FREE to the children and families that we serve.

The same self-esteem and sense of belonging that children receive from being involved in sports benefits all children.

We are Strength In Numbers

Rooted in the belief that no matter what the outcome, the game is never over, the TU41 team
goes up to bat for children with challenges to give them their own chance to swing for the fences.
