ABOUT THE "15 FOR LIFE" FOUNDATION (https://15forlife.org/)

BACKGROUND: FAMILY

Robert Kavovit was an All-American father, husband, son, brother, uncle, friend, neighbor, coach, and lacrosse player. He was all about family, all the time!

Rob wore #15 because it represented "Family," his family, the 1 girl and 5 boys that are the Kavovits.

Although he had a strong family and a beautiful life, Rob succumbed to depression and a potential underlying mental illness in March 2021.

MISSION: EDUCATION

In Rob’s honor, his family will carry the torch of the "15 For Life Foundation” to shed the shame and embarrassment around depression and mental wellness. 15 For Life's mission is to educate younger generations so they can grow up with more education, becoming better equipped to understand depression and mental illness potentially affecting themselves, family and/or friends.

Through education and better understanding genetic susceptibilities people can be less prone to the illnesses inside.

15 For Life … It’s Understanding You! 

GOALS: SAVE LIVES

In our first year, the 15 For Life Foundation will speak directly to 15,000 people through our “On The Field” program, a grassroots real-talk educational curriculum focused on mental wellness. We will also gather 1.5 Million "Pledge Seconds" per day through our “15 Second Pledge” campaign. This powerful social media campaign will create awareness around mental illness and depression, as well as educate people on how to help themselves and others around them.

Simply put, 15 For Life wants to save lives!
