DARRELL BROWN HAD A VISION OF GIVING BACK TO UNDERPRIVILEGED KIDS. AS A RESULT, CHILDREN
AT RISK INC. WAS BORN. IN 1999, AFTER 7 YEARS AS VICE PRESIDENT AT I LOVE THE KIDS FOUNDATION,
INC. THE DECISION WAS MADE TO REINSTATE AND RENAME CHILDREN AT RISK, INC. TO A.R.K.
COALITION, INC. THE CORE PHILOSOPHY WAS THAT A.R.K. COALITION WOULD BE UPLIFTING AND
ENHANCE THE QUALITY OF LIFE THROUGH EDUCATION, ATHLETICS AND SPIRITUALITY. GROWING UP IN
A "INNER CITY" ENVIRONMENT WITH LIMITED OPTIONS MAKES IT HARD TO FULLY REALIZE LIFES
OPTIONS AND POSSIBILITIES. THESE STRUGGLES THAT WERE FACED BY MANY EVOLVED INTO A SENSE
OF HOPE, AMBITION AND DIGNITY. IN MANY WAYS SPORTS WERE AN OUTLET THAT PAVED THE WAY
THROUGH THE MAZE OF BEING A BOY, BECOMING AN ADOLESCENT TEENAGER AND APPROACHING
MANHOOD’S TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS.
