All donations and proceeds from TYED Together will go to benefit HAVlife. HAVlife Quad Cities was the first of three HAVlife chapters established to shed light on lost potential in youth ages 10 to 15. Full of athletic aspirations, musical passions, and artistic talents, these dreamer’s zest for life runs deep. Unfortunately for some, financial burdens and life’s obstacles trump ambition, leaving dreams untouched and potential lost. Through local school systems, community organizations and generous individuals, HAVlife works with these individuals to Prevent Lost Potential! Whether it be providing funds for a young boy to attend a local music camp, or for a young girl to attend a soccer camp her family can’t afford, HAVlife provides the resources students need to pursue their musical aspirations and athletic goals.
