Hoosiers for Good Signs The first class of student athletes

Bloomington-based Hoosiers For Good Inc., a non-profit organization, has signed a first-class student contract with Indiana University students. The non-profit organization claims that 14 student athletes will use their platform and influence to raise awareness about eight Indian charities, including the Riley Children’s Foundation, Indiana Wish and the Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County, among others.

The inaugural class features IU men’s and women’s basketball, soccer, women’s volleyball, softball, women’s swimming and diving, and women’s soccer. The non-profit organization claims that athletes help raise awareness through personal appearances and social media.

“We are excited to announce our first class of Hoosiers For Good student athletes,” said Tyler Harris, CEO of Hoosiers For Good. “From the beginning, we have deliberately identified student athletes who have the platform and ambition to positively impact communities in Indiana through charitable participation. We believe that this first class of Hoosiers For Good student athletes and all subsequent classes will bring real value to our charity partners. ”

The spring class 2022 is listed below:

  • Riley Children’s Foundation – Brittany Ford, softball
  • Indiana Wish – Mackenzie Holmes and Grace Berger, basketball
  • Indiana American Red Cross Area – Matthew Bedford and Jack Tuttle, football
  • Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County – Camryn Haworth, volleyball and Jordyn Levy, football
  • Turnstone – Trayce Jackson-Davis, basketball
  • Stop the Violence Indianapolis – Race Thompson, basketball
  • Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington – Anne Fowler, swimming and diving, DJ Matthews, football and Tiawan Mullen, football
  • RecycleForce – AJ Barner and Shaun Shivers, football

The newly formed non-profit organization was created to raise awareness of charitable causes in Indiana and to promote positive social change. Indiana University graduate and president of Cook Group and Cook Medical, based in Bloomington, Pete Yonkman serves as chairman and president of a non-profit organization.

“Athletes, especially Indiana University athletes, have a big voice in our communities and the spotlight is bright,” said Yonkman. “If we can use their spotlight and start using it to reveal the good work of our charitable partners, we have a chance to achieve real improvement and value for the people who need it most.”

Hoosiers For Good says it will sign second grade later this year and plans to hold more programs and events during the year.
