The #SuccessProject website is an interactive social experience delivered online and mobile, where users can watch, read, share, and interact with all the shared stories of athletic success submitted or captured by the SKLZ team. The experience will include videos, photos, social conversation, comments, sharing, prizes and more.

"#SuccessProject is a call to action to inspire and be inspired." said SKLZ CEO, John Sarkisian. "We want to motivate athletes to share and encourage one another to elevate them to be the best person they can, both on and off the field."

SKLZ is committed to giving back and with that SKLZ has pledged $1 for every #SuccessProject submission to benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation ® (CAF) in their mission: "to provide opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through fitness and competitive athletics."

"CAF has empowered more than 7,000 physically challenged athletes to build their own unique story of success; and inspired thousands more," said Virginia Tinley, Executive Director of the Challenged Athletes Foundation. "The #SuccessProject will help us continue our mission and provide a powerful platform for people of all abilities to showcase what is possible through sports."

SKLZ has enlisted the services of elite athletes: Anthony Bass of the San Diego Padres, Iron Man triathlete Charisa Wernick, Track Star Milena Glusaz, former soccer player and current triathlete Katie Morse, and professional cyclist Alison Marie Tetrick, to post weekly blogs about success and how they strive to achieve their goals and elevate themselves as athletes on a daily basis, so that they may reach the elusive destination: Success…

Stories can be posted online or via feed to a mobile friendly site at thesuccessproject.com. Every story submitted will be shared along side posts and videos from world-class athletes including: Albert Pujols, LaMichael James, Kyle Harrison, Megan Willis, and professional coaches and trainers.
