Sports Challenge is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that offers a relationship-based mentoring program for Stanford student-athletes.  Though we are not officially recognized or financially supported by Stanford University, we have spent over 40 years on the Farm dedicating our lives to teaching and developing young men into future leaders through spiritually-based lessons focused on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.  

Led by Jim Stump, Sports Challenge serves student-athletes by meeting weekly one-on-one in safe settings which gives student-athletes the freedom to relax, unwind, and talk confidentially about pertinent issues in their lives.  Jim provides support, friendship and teaching, while encouraging student-athletes to use their athletic platform to positively influence others for Jesus.
