Big League Impact, now an official partner of Yahoo Fantasy Sports, is proud to announce the Fantasy Impact Charity Challenge with Steven Matz.
This week, before Sunday NFL games begin at 1:00pm ET, you can enter a Daily Fantasy contest for a chance to win valuable prizes—including autographed baseballs from Steven and NL Cy Young Award candidate Jacob deGrom, autographed David Wright prints from the artist Steven Walden, and the Grand Prize: entry into a 2019 Big League Impact Fantasy Draft Event.
It’s $10 to enter, and takes only a few minutes: simply pick players from 13 Sunday football games to build your fantasy team, and you can enter up to 10 times if you want to improve your chances. 100% of contest entry fees will be donated to funding a scholarship for the children of fallen first responders—from the FDNY and NYPD, as well as military service members—as part of Steven’s TRU32 initiative. He was recently nominated for Major League Baseball’s Roberto Clemente Award, given each year to the player who best represents the game through extraordinary character, community involvement, philanthropy, and positive contributions.
In August, Steven and teammates deGrom, Devin Mesoraco, Jerry Blevins, Drew Smith, and legendary Mets pitcher Doc Gooden hosted Big League Impact New York’s Annual Fantasy Football draft. The event raised enough money to fund six TRU32 scholarships, and as a final push with Big League Impact and Yahoo, he’ll be competing in this week’s contest and hopes that this week’s contest entry fees will raise the money for one more.
If you don’t love fantasy, but still want to help, you can donate to the campaign here.
The contest begins on Sunday, 10/3 at 1:00 ET. We hope you’ll support us this week, and we’ll see you on the fantasy field!
