Why support the foundation?
“Cancer can affect any of our lives at any time. Losing Carl has been devastating to all who knew and loved him. Supporting the foundation can offer support, comfort and hope in many ways, whether that’s to individuals and their families, or within beautiful places of nature to enjoy and reflect.”
“The Carl Lewis Foundation supports such wonderful charities which will help others who are going through what Carl did, and give them the best support and care that they need. Carl was also so passionate about wildlife and nature. He would want nothing more than to help preserve the wildlife and nature of that in the midlands, and further afield.”
“Helping others is something we all are encouraged to do, however the Carl Lewis Foundation goes above and beyond. Giving young people an opportunity that has been born out of tragedy is truly impressive. I love supporting such a venture.”
