Athlete Charities Giving Back

A lot of professional athletes give their time and money to very worthy causes. We take a look at some of the sports world's most generous athletes.

Charities - The Steve Nash Foundation

Canadian native Steve Nash might be making his living in the United States, but he has not forgotten about his fans up north. Every year the Phoenix Suns star hosts the Charity Classic Basketball Game in Vancouver, BC where he raises money for his foundation. The Steve Nash Foundation supports charities that promote health in kids - specifically underpriviledged kids. The Foundation benefits children in his native British Columbia, Canada as well as in Phoenix. He also contributes money to development projects in Paraguay.

Charities - The Warrick Dunn Foundation

Atlanta Falcons running back Warrick Dunn knows what is like to come from a single-parent home. His mother Betty raised Warrick and his five siblings on the tough streets of New Orleans. Now that he's in a position to help, he started the Warrick Dunn Foundation to help families like his own - helping single mothers purchase homes. Since he started his foundation nine years ago, the foundation has raised over $5 million in donations.

Charities - The Tiger Woods Foundation

Tiger Woods knows that not every kid can afford to play the sport of golf. That's why he set up a foundation to provide free golf clinics to disadvantaged youth - especially those in the African American community. Tiger's foundation also provides college scholarships for kids. In February 2006, he opened the Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim, California. The center boasts 35,000 square feet of multi-media learning tools for nine to 18 year olds.

Charities - The Oscar de la Hoya Foundation

Boxing star Oscar de la Hoya's foundation provides opportunities for kids in his old neighborhood in East Los Angeles, California. His foundation also has a learning center, where thousands of neighborhood children can benefit from a safe and technologically advanced facility after school and on weekends.

It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3

Sure, many girls can fight, in fact some can fight really well, however it is a fact that women are generally physically weaker than men, which means that if a healthy male and a healthy female were to fight then the outcome wouldn't be 50/50 but rather 25/75 if even that much, this assumes that both the male and female have the same experience, training and of course both are healthy. This doesn't mean that women are inferior to men, but I am just pointing out facts, the notion that men and women are exactly the same and should be carrying out the same tasks is ridiculous.
