Help us provide ill children with a smile a day to keep the doctor away.
With donations as small as $10, you can help us achieve our mission of changing the lives of children with critical illnesses, one smile at a time.
Each donation guarantees one smile, and helps us build a platform for thousands more.
My name is Maxim Manyak, and I am a Senior at the University of Notre Dame and captain of the Notre Dame Men's Lacrosse Team. I am also the Founder and CEO of the nonprofit, Pediatric Pep Talk. Our story started 2 years ago when I changed the life of my 10-year-old teammate, Ian. He changed my life, and together we are committed to changing the lives of thousands more. This is Pediatric Pep Talk where a smile a day keeps the doctor away.
For more details see this CBS news interview, and featured news article.
We need help to launch our app-based platform that connects critically ill children with collegiate athletes across the country. Solving pediatric illness one smile at a time.
As a team of student-athletes ourselves, we understand the importance of taking on challenges as a team and we need your help to expand and grow our platform bringing team culture to little "teammates" across the country. Each team at Notre Dame has a “teammate,” and we are hoping to expand to other schools across the country to help other little "teammates" who have yet to find their team.
How much is a precious little smile worth to you, and can you or someone you know help sponsor a little teammate? Thank you and keep smiling!
Thank you to the generous support we have received from Father Jenkins, the Men's Lacrosse Team, and our home institution, Notre Dame.
