 A conversation with Kevin Milstein: Keeping His Son’s Legacy Alive Through Sports Across the Globe


Andrea speaks with Kevin Milstein, founder of the Reagan Milstein Foundation. Kelvin started the foundation in 2010 after tragically losing his 14-year-old son Reagan on a family vacation. The foundation’s mission is to collect used sports equipment like boots, uniforms, etc. and donate them to underprivileged kids and communities around the world.

Kelvin discusses how the foundation began with the idea of helping kids afford to play sports, and grew into a massive operation collecting and distributing sports gear across over 30 countries. He shares powerful stories about the impact, like a child in Samoa being given a pair of boots who couldn’t believe he was getting them. The foundation uses sport to connect communities, provide education opportunities, and open doors for kids.
