Kevin Love’s charity group starts off by giving back to UCLA student-athletes, coaches
Cleveland Cavs superstar forward Kevin Love founded the ‘Kevin Love Fund’ a couple of weeks ago. Love’s charity group started to carry out their mission by giving back to UCLA student-athletes and coaches, per Cleveland.com.
The group partnered with Headspace, an organization whose goal is to help people through meditation and relaxation of the mind. Here’s Love’s statement on the recent project of his group.
“I am really excited to partner with Headspace to bring an invaluable tool to the Bruin family,” Love said in a release Wednesday morning. “It is incredibly important to the mind as well as the body to be at peak performances in all aspects of life, and Headspace makes it so easy for student-athletes to integrate mental training into their everyday regimens.”
While this is the detailed statement of Headspace’s Lindsay Shaffer on how they would help UCLA’s athletes and coaches.
“Kevin Love’s commitment to integrating mental fitness into sport, together with UCLA’s storied athletic success and commitment to their student-athletes’ holistic well-being, is the perfect combination to evolve the culture of sport to be one in which training the mind is equally as important as training the body,” said Lindsay Shaffer, Head of Sports and Fitness at Headspace. “We are incredibly excited to partner with the Kevin Love Fund to establish Headspace as the mental training tool for UCLA athletes and coaches.”
Love recently opened up about his anxieties and mental health this year. Along with other notable NBA players, Love opened up a gateway for other athletes to be aware of the importance of mental health to their lives.
