BRIDGE ELITE GLOBAL Foundation is a
non-profit organization established by

to bring awareness to ELITE athletes on
the benefits of using their platforms in
a positive manner to increase their quality
of life, as well as their respective families.

networks in collaboration with like minded
ELITE athletes on a global scale for the

business ideas, resources, and experiences.
