This week, Assist International is sharing in the celebration with the city of Philadelphia and Eagles fans everywhere. On Sunday night, the Philadelphia Eagles won Super Bowl LII. Nate Sudfeld, Eagles #7, is a part of the Assist International family. He is the grandson of founders Bob and Charlene Pagett, and the son of our current CEO, Ralph Sudfeld, and Director of Administration, Michelle Sudfeld. The entire Assist International team is proud of Nate’s victory and the hard work that got him there.
But Nate isn’t just a great football player. He is dedicated to the mission and values of Assist International and has been involved with our organization from a young age. Bob and Charlene Pagett encouraged Nate to take his first global trip with Assist International at age 13. Since then, he has traveled to Romania and Uganda to volunteer on humanitarian projects.
Most recently, Nate traveled to Uganda with Assist International to volunteer at a sports camp for the AOET Orphan Village in Jinja. This event had a big impact on the entire region. Hundreds of children attended the camp and learned the basics of basketball and volleyball. Of course, Nate couldn’t leave without helping some of the kids learn how to throw an American football! You can read more about that sports camp here.
Congratulations, Nate! We are so proud of your Super Bowl win and your dedication to helping meet the needs of the world’s most vulnerable people.
