What would it be like to have everyone, youth and adults
alike, playing together on the team of life?

After years of hosting Nike golf camps, establishing programs and trainings for young athletes, and raising more than $8M for junior golf, Gerry never imagined that his golf career would add up to an even higher calling, until one night…

“It came in a dream seven years ago,” Gerry says. “God spoke to me and told me to show his strength on Earth in numbers. He then showed me a silhouette of a t-shirt. It was a powerful vision; I knew I had to bring it to life.”

While he continued to coach students on the green, Gerry pondered — what would it be like to have everyone — youth and adults alike — playing together on the team of life? Combining individual purposes, skills and passions could equal something bigger than the sum of its parts. If every teammate had a unique number on their shirt, it could show that they wanted to be counted and counted on to build a better world. Now that would show strength in numbers.

As the blueprint for In The Number® social enterprise emerged, Gerry made a personal commitment that he would invest 51% of the net profits back into the global community, in the areas of Education, Disaster Relief, Health and Human Rights. Beyond the game of golf, Gerry believes the InTheNumber® team can change the world for good and make this life count. What’s your number?
