The Coronavirus has brought the entire sports world to a halt. However, sporters (sports influencers: athletes, former athletes, coaches, agents, teams, leagues, brands, etc.) from around the world are stepping up and fighting the coronavirus crisis in support of their communities. The response has been remarkable thus far and more people keep joining the fight.
Examples are Roger Federer donating 1 million Swiss Franc to families in need, FC Bayern Munich players Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka starting the We Kick Corona campaign and donating 1 million Euro, and New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees donating $5 million to communities in Louisiana.
Obviously, we think that’s awesome 👏 . So, to document all the amazing work that these athletes are doing around the world, we started this Google Sheet. We also made it publicly available, so please add any sporter who you know is fighting the Coronavirus crisis in some way to help spread the awesome work of they are doing.
