Founder and CEO of Chance for Sports: Anuva Shandilya

 Anuva is junior at Neuqua Valley High School, where she is very involved with sports. She played Varsity lacrosse her freshman year, is on the track team, and is also a PE leader at her school. Sports have influenced her life incredibly, and she thought it completely unfair that underprivileged children did not have the same opportunities to play, which is why she created Chance for Sports. In her free time, Anuva also likes to hang out with friends, go for hikes with her dog, April, and travel!

Board Member of Chance for Sports: Christian De Leon

Christian is a junior at Neuqua Valley where he is on the Ultimate Frisbee team. He is a lover of all things basketball, but was unfortunately injured in middle school and is unable to fully extend his right elbow, preventing him from playing. Undeterred by his injury, and wanting to spread passion for sports among all children, Christian joined the Chance for Sports team to make sure no child is left behind. In his free time, Christian enjoys playing the guitar, going to church, and playing with his adorable dog, Happy!
