“I recently met Tim at the Ogden Speaking Academy in Atlanta and learned about his Operation Teammate organization that he spoke passionately about. He is truly a world-class guy who is on a mission to change lives.” - Mark A. Wingo, former NFL player - 2016
Operation Teammate in Augusta, Georgia, is a children's focused organization engaged in supporting the sons and daughters of all branches of the military, Veteran Wounded Warriors, and a variety of first responders. We give these children a memorable sporting experience by teaming them with athletic teams who make them honorary members during that time of separation.
With extensive research and more than 3,000 hours of community involvement, we have found athletic and community organizations are more than eager to join our cause. We don't just assist children while their parents are away; we help build their character so they become significant members of the community like their parents.
At Operation Teammate, we understand how tough it is for children to be separated from their parents. While you are on duty across the globe, we provide an opportunity for them to grow socially and build self-confidence.
Youth development is an important aspect of community building. At Operation Teammate, we take that to heart. We all have many obligations, sometimes we need a time out; we choose to help children of our deployed military and first responders. Providing an outlet for them to build character through sporting interaction while their parents are temporarily away is our #1 priority.
Bob Salomon and his team created a movement surrounding the book's message to inspire children through kindness and encouraging them to never give up. The story focuses on a child and his family going through a hard time and looks at the impact the boy's favorite football player #87 has on his life.

You are our #1 priority, and we fully understand that establishing that open line of communication is paramount in the success of Operation Teammate.
