Greater Than the Game Launches Summer Fundraising Campaign

Crowdfunding Campaign to Support Founder’s Mission For Inspiring Storytelling

Ryan Sahlin, a graduate of Rutgers University and resident of Freehold, has launched the second fundraising campaign for Greater Than the Game Inc. (GTTG), a non-profit organization with a focus on compelling and inspiring sports storytelling. GTTG’s mission is to “change the hearts and minds of the next generation through digital content that promotes the positive impact of sports, and empowers and educates viewers to develop their mental strength, overcome personal challenges, and become Greater Than the Game.”

GTTG produces, publishes, and distributes compelling human-interest stories from the world of sports via podcasts and digital content. Each interview and story features athletes across the spectrum of sports around the world who are committed to achieving goals and dreams that many thought were impossible and who are positively impacting communities online and within the regions they live. The stories of people who have overcome a myriad of different challenges in life serve as examples for young people, giving them hope for the future and perspective regarding their situations.

GTTG was founded by Ryan Sahlin, who earned his bachelor’s degree from the Rutgers University School of Communication and Information and his graduate degree from the Rutgers University Global School of Sports Business. Diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at the age of one, Ryan never allowed his disability to hinder him from living a full life. This never-quit attitude compelled him to engage people of all abilities with his content featuring inspiring athletes achieving their sports dreams.

“There are so many people who aren’t living out their full potential … because they don’t believe they can or were told their whole lives they couldn’t due to a challenge they were facing in life,” Sahlin said. “Greater Than the Game is the platform that will challenge that paradigm by showing our viewers what’s possible and inspiring them to become Greater Than the Game.”

Sahlin and his team of content creators have already produced more than 150 pieces of inspiring content, and 20 podcast episodes telling the incredible stories of athletes around the world, ranging from Rutgers Football Player Eric LeGrand to nine-time X Games medalist Scott Cranmer, to Jets Center Connor McGovern and every type of athlete in between.
