CoachArt and Making Good Reunion on Zoom Answers “What is Keeping You Motivated?”
CoachArt, a nonprofit organization that matches volunteer coaches with children impacted by chronic illness for free lessons in arts and athletics, was featured on season 2 of Making Good in an episode that aired April 22, 2020.
We recently had the opportunity to hold a “cast reunion” on Zoom with Making Good‘s host, Kirby Heyborne, and CoachArt families, students, and coaches who were featured in the episode. The reunion gave us all an opportunity to check in with each other on what’s happened since the show, and everyone was invited to answer the question, “What is keeping you motivated lately?”
Answers included MineCraft, cooking, writing, and playing board games with family! Everyone shared how we missed social group gatherings (due to the COVID-19 health crisis) but how rewarding it was to be part of the Making Good / CoachArt project. We’re looking forward to future collaborations and solo accomplishments to come!
We hope you ENJOY this video of the CoachArt Reunion with Making Good, hosted by CoachArt’s Los Angeles Senior Program Manager Lizzie Neff! Let us know in the comments: What is keeping YOU motivated lately?

About Making Good
From Cosmic Pictures and BYUtv, Making Good is a 30-minute unscripted series chronicling one man’s quest to serve. Host Kirby Heyborne (“The Three Stooges”) loves helping people and eagerly volunteers for organizations regardless of the circumstances and his background or experience. He channels enthusiasm to learn about new ways to make a difference, getting his hands dirty working side-by-side with the founders of charities and non-profits who are touching lives all across the United States. Along the way he shares laughs, tears, and songs with his newfound friends and learns exactly what it takes to make good.
About the Episode
“In Los Angeles, Kirby joins CoachArt, a non-profit organization that matches chronically ill children with mentors in their areas of interest. Kirby tags along to a couple of mentoring sessions and finds two boys with a love for music. Together, they decide to write a song for the boys’ mom as a thank-you for everything she does for them.”

MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR FAMILIES IMPACTED BY CHILDHOOD CHRONIC ILLNESS
CoachArt’s mission is to create a transformative arts and athletics community for families impacted by childhood chronic illness. Our vision is that one day every family impacted by chronic illness will be connected to a community of support and an opportunity to learn and grow together.
CoachArt offers free art and athletic lessons to chronically ill children and their siblings between the ages of 5-18. We currently serve Los Angeles, San Diego, and the San Francisco Bay Area, with more cities coming soon. If your child has been diagnosed with a chronic condition, we invite you to fill out a student eligibility form or get in touch to learn if CoachArt is right for your child.
