After 16 months of traveling the country, we’re showcasing our favorite stories of local nonprofits in a special Best Of Community Spotlight.
Each show airs monthly on FOX Sports Southwest and participating FOX Sports regional networks. Check local listings for availability and show times.
Over the last 16 months, Power of Sports has traveled the country, telling stories of local nonprofits that are using sports to impact the lives of kids in their communities.
This month, we’re looking back on those stories and featuring our favorites in a special “Best Of” episode.

During our Indianapolis episode, we featured the Joseph Maley Foundation and their JMFitness program. This adaptive athletics program gives athletes of all abilities the opportunity to play sports.
Not only was the Joseph Maley Foundation recently voted the best nonprofit in Indianapolis, but they also held their first camp for siblings of kids with disabilities.
Season 1, Show 11 – South Bronx United
We featured South Bronx United in our New York episode. This youth soccer club serves kids in the poorest congressional district in America.

Our premier episode centered on Oklahoma City and featured the work of the OKC Police Athletic League, one of 300 Police Athletic Leagues across the nation.
