Kathy DiCocco and Emil Sapere talk about the H.O.P.E. Foundation, which works to help other people excel.
The foundation’s mission statement reads: “We will strive to help underprivileged student athletes to demonstrate exemplary character, passionate vision and enthusiastic ambition, a commitment to both academic and intellectual excellence, dedication to community service, and a desire to become personally and professionally successful.”
Recently, the foundation donated more than 6,000 books by coach Frank DiCocco to athletic programs across the country. DiCocco, the founder of the H.O.P.E. Foundation, is also the creator of a unique and comprehensive character-education curriculum designed specifically for young men.
