HOUSTON – Team Impact will be in Houston from October 17-26, conducting assemblies in more than 200 local schools.
Team Impact is a group of world-class athletes – including champion power-lifters, previous WWE wrestlers and former NFL players – who perform jaw-dropping feats of strength while sharing sensational and positive messages with their audiences.
"It’s a great way to get the attention of an audience," said Jeff Neal, Team Impact co-founder. "We have learned that when we do these feats of strength, it opens doors in public schools and other places."
The Team Impact athletes routinely break baseball bats with their bare hands, shatter concrete blocks and bend solid steel bars in two during their performances.
At the school assemblies, Team Impact athletes will speak to students about bullying, the dangers of drugs, building character, academic excellence and making wise choices.
More than 100,000 students in area elementary, junior high and high schools will attend.
Students and their families are invited to attend a free evening event with Team Impact power athletes at one of five Second Baptist Church campuses in Houston. This will be the largest outreach ever done in the United States. The evening dates, times and locations are as follows:
