The Will To Live Foundation, Inc. in keeping with its mission, its principles and its motto of “For the kids, through the kids by the kids” is very pleased to announce the “Life Teammates Award & Scholarship” that will be presented each year to senior members of  Barrington High School’s sports programs, clubs, and organizations.  This award and scholarship has been funded by The Barrington High Class of 1980!

On May 8th, 2023, Will To Live Co-Founder, and BHS 1980 Graduate, John Trautwein, with many of his classmates on hand, will present the first Life Teammate award and scholarship to two student athletes at Barrington High School.

“Our Life Teammate program was inspired by my own friends and teammates at Barrington high, so many years ago.  These are my life friends, my Life Teammates and we are still here for each other every day – over 40 years later.  It is the desire of our class to help spread the Will To Live Foundation’s “Life Teammates message” each year to the students at Barrington High.  THESE KIDS HAVE THE POWER TO DELIVER HOPE TO EACH OTHER-  IT’S WHAT LIFE TEAMMATES DO”
