About Charity for Champions
Founded in 2008 by Dr. Al DeSimone, Champions for Charity
has provided more than 490 scholarships for student-athletes in our community. This supports the vision that by playing sports and valuing the importance of education, young student-athletes, despite any limitation or adversity they may face, can learn the importance of sportsmanship, academics, team leadership, and community service. Scholarships are awarded based on an application and interview process and on several criteria, including athletic achievements, academic accomplishments, artistry, team fellowship, and community involvement.
Dr. DeSimone is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon trained in Sports Medicine, and has been in private practice for over 20 years. He is currently the Director of Sports Medicine at the South Florida Institute of Sports Medicine. This multi-subspecialty group consists of nine physicians and three office locations in Broward County.
