Derek Jeter Welcomes You
Welcome to my Turn 2 Foundation website. I'm excited and eager to share with you some very important and fun information. It's about my foundation, Turn 2, which I created to assist today's youth.
Because I want you to keep coming back, we'll update the site frequently with new and interesting information. I love baseball, but baseball isn't my whole life as you'll see. Giving back to my community, especially the children in those communities, is really important to me. By showing how I lend my support, I hope to inspire you to help out in your communities as well.
Reaching out to young people is important, particularly so I can share with them what I have learned about the value of living a healthy lifestyle. It's not always easy, but I can help them learn how to make good choices that will impact their lives in a positive way.
Some things that will be highlighted on my Web site include my Jeter's Leaders Program, as well as the many other youth programs and events the Turn 2 Foundation and our generous sponsors make possible. We do a lot of good work and host very exciting fundraisers. The support we receive from so many well respected contributors is invaluable.
I hope you find this website both entertaining and informative. Check back often and please -- spread the word to all of your friends!
Thank you and enjoy!
