MINNEAPOLIS --News Direct-- BettorEdge
“We’re thankful to our strong community that so many people choose to give to such a great cause in Chad Greenway’s Lead the Way Foundation,” said Greg Kajewski, Co-Founder of BettorEdge. “Chad continues to do amazing things with many Children’s hospitals across the Midwest, including Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, and Iowa. We’re honored to have a strong BettorEdge community that chooses to support Chad and those in need.”
Established in 2008 by former Minnesota Vikings standout and two-time Pro Bowler Chad Greenway, Lead the Way’s mission is to enrich the lives of individuals and families in need. The foundation is focused primarily on providing seriously ill and physically challenged children throughout the Twin Cities with daily support and life-changing experiences.
The foundation impacts over two million sick children and their families through three special needs playgrounds in Minnesota and lockers in nine hospitals complete with computers, movies and video game consoles for patients to occupy their time during hospital stays.
“We are so thankful for the support from BettorEdge,” said President and Founder Chad Greenway. “I grew up, played college football and played all 11 years of my NFL career here in the Midwest. There isn’t anything better than seeing others do the same and want to help out and make it a better place to live.”
BettorEdge is a platform created with the bettor in mind, where users can enjoy peer-to-peer betting and no-commission transactions. Users on the platform can opt to donate the fee they saved by using BettorEdge to a local charity. In the first year since launch, about one-fourth of users have opted into the donation service, making up a significant portion of this $10,000 donation. BettorEdge is excited about the success of this first charitable push and plans to expand its list of charitable recipients across the nation in 2022.
