Life is hard in Barrow, Alaska. Football mom Cathy Parker first caught a glimpse of this far-away reality from the comfort of her Jacksonville, Florida, living room while watching a 2006 ESPN report on the Barrow Whalers, a high school football team consisting mostly of Alaskan Inupiat Eskimo natives playing in the most difficult of conditions and trying to overcome the most unlikely of odds.

After learning of a struggling community 4,000 miles away who was trying to start a football program, Cathy Parker (sports mom) began an effort to help them do the impossible. Through faith and perseverance, she rallied her community and thousands across the country to change the destiny of a forgotten Alaskan community.  Cathy’s remarkable story demonstrates the incredible, tangible unifier sports can be for all of us.
