Max Levitt – Leveling the Playing Field
Max Levitt founded Leveling the Playing Field in the Spring of 2011 during his senior year at Syracuse University. The purpose of Leveling the Playing Field (LTPF) is to give underprivileged children the opportunity to enjoy athletic involvement. LTPF collects donations of sports equipment from various collegiate athletic departments, families and individual donors from across the nation. Studies show that students who participate in sports have higher grade point averages, attendance rates, standardized test scores, educational aspirations, health habits and feelings of connection and belonging. Because of equipment costs, 1 in 5 children are not involved in organized sports. LTPE currently provides sports equipment for kids located between Northern VA to Baltimore MD.
