“Chrissy and Insightful Player are an amazing partner and resource in sharing the positive stories of athlete role models,” said Mahler. “We share some of the positive things that players and their families contribute to our communities, challenges they have faced, dreams, losses and laughs. It is my hope that we tell their stories of leadership, teamwork and strength in a way that connects with and even inspires you – as it does us.”
