Our Ambassador program
CoachUp Ambassadors are elite professional athletes who share CoachUp’s vision for helping kids change the trajectory of their lives through sports. CoachUp partners with CoachUp Ambassadors to auction off a private coaching session for charity. CoachUp will donate a certain percentage of the proceeds to a charity or nonprofit organization of the Ambassador's choice. The auction winner scores a private coaching session with the CoachUp Ambassador for up to four athletes. The CoachUp Ambassador Program will auction off private coaching sessions with CoachUp Ambassadors throughout the year and across the country.
Live and past auction information can be found at http://ambassador.coachup.com

Techies Rock for Boston
In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing tragedy, CoachUp organized a fundraiser the proceeds of which were donated to the One Fund, the official fund set up by Mayor Menino and Governor Deval Patrick for victim relief. Local tech companies contributed donations and local talent donated their musical talents for the evening’s entertainment. The event raised nearly $25,000 for the One Fund.
