About Let Them Play Foundation
For the past few years, Eric and Tarah Byrnes had been funding small, specific needs for local youth activity organizations. As a family that deeply valued sport, activity and community, it was a natural fit. The first one was for $450 to their little league, at risk for losing the junior umpire program because they couldn’t afford the proper safety equipment. Eric and Tarah stumbled upon this need, quickly fulfilled it, and began to understand that there were other organizations run by volunteers, serving children, that had small gaps, and that if people knew about them, they would want to fix it. This began a quest for the Byrnes family. The more digging they did, the more profound the need became. Massive amounts of research confirmed the positive correlation between regular physical activity and improved academic performance and better social and emotional environments.
