The Real Winning Edge is a 26-week half-hour broadcast television program that introduces viewers to some of the most incredibly talented young people in America. But it’s more than a showcase for kids with exceptional talent and athleticism. It’s about teenagers who’ve built character through their struggles with cancer or death of a loved one. It’s about kids who came face-to-face with drug abuse and peer pressure without losing their focus on their goal. Through interviews and profiles, these remarkable young people provide honest answers about how they dealt with adversity in their lives.
Each half-hour program includes three segments, each segment featuring the personal story of an outstanding young person. The stories are introduced by an all-star team of 78 high-profile, professional celebrities that include Super Bowl star Greg Jennings of the Green Bay Packers, NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon, Basebal MVP Albert Pujols; Olympic champions Misty May-Treanor and Aly Raisman; outstanding music artists like Martina McBride; and top names from extreme sports such as skateboarding legend Christian Hosoi, snowboarding X-Game champions Caleb & Colton Moore, and motocross star Nate Adams.
