“Our partnership with the Motiv8 Foundation has been nothing short of amazing. They have provided our students with the opportunity to see high quality football and basketball games. And not just one or two students, 400-500 students at a time. Our students come from communities that don’t often, if ever, get the opportunity to attend a college game. The Motiv8 Foundation makes it possible for students not only to cheer on their home team, but to even mingle with the teams on the field and of course, most exciting of all, to meet with Marcus himself. Our students talk about their experiences for weeks and months after and it also serves as an added incentive for kids to join our programs, keeping them off the streets and out of trouble, each day after school. It is not an exaggeration to say, that the Motiv8 Foundation helps us to improve student participation at program and at school.”

“I had the best time Saturday at the game, I got a t-shirt, lots of food, I saw the game and I got to talk to Marcus Mariota. I have never been to a game at the stadium before and I want to go every time now. I stayed up most of the night telling my brother about it, he wants to come next time!”

“Partnering with the Motiv8 Foundation has felt like we’ve expanded our family – we think as a team and support each other through every process. The genuine passion the entire Motiv8 team has for the work they accomplish in bettering our communities is inspiring. It’s no secret that Marcus Mariota is humble and gracious. The Motiv8 Foundation was built on a solid foundation of reflecting that humble and gracious attitude and continuously provides opportunities for our community to be exposed to positivity. Sweet Cheeks Winery is honored to be part of the journey for the Motiv8 Foundation.”
