Scott Schricker Memorial Scholarship

Scott Schricker, a beloved Sports Backers employee, recently passed away after a hard-fought battle with pancreatic cancer. Scott’s steadfast belief in our mission to inspire active living led him to almost three decades of dedicated service, and he requested that upon his passing donations be made to Sports Backers to further his impact on the community. To honor Scott and create a legacy for him, Sports Backers has established a memorial scholarship in his name.

Donations can be made by clicking on the donation link and then selecting your donation to be designated towards the “Scott Schricker Memorial Scholarship”.
