The Beating the Odds Foundation is a wonderful example of how mentoring and motivation can inspire young people to take control of their lives and to raise their personal expectations and goals.

– Dr. Gerald L. Zahorchak, Former PA Secretary of Education

The Quarterbacks of Life® Student Success and Leadership Program teaches students how what they learn in school prepares them to create, package, and market themselves as caring human beings and builders of caring communities.

Every dollar matters in keeping our organization running. And we definitely appreciate every donation regardless of the amount. To show our appreciation, every person who donates $35 or more will receive a Quarterbacks of Life® DVD. The DVD features Rocky Bleier’s story of how he beat the odds to become a top running back with the Pittsburgh Steelers, even after sustaining combat wounds in Vietnam. And you will also learn how Bob Wieland walked on his arms, from California to the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Washington, DC, after losing his legs in Vietnam.


Beating the Odds Foundation is exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, making any gift you give tax deductible!
