Honor the Life of Mackenzie Forrest through Investing in Kindness

The Hustle + Heart 33 organization exists to share and continue to expand the reach of the story of Mackenzie Forrest’s life. The focus of this campaign is on her Hustle (passion) + Heart (compassion) and how they can be instilled by others in their daily lives, that result in setting one apart for others.

We are raising funds to help students in schools and communities to recognize and live by Hustle + Heart. Our focus is to develop projects, visuals, wearables, and events that identify, recognize, and reward Hustle + Heart.

Our goal is to quantifiably measure Hustle + Heart from within a person, and to a person, and expand the awareness so that society and our lives benefit from Hustle + Heart.

Because Kindness Matters - Projects Fund

Established in 2020, the Lil Mac’s Hustle + Heart Projects Fund was developed in remembrance of Mackenzie Forrest, our angel, who was the embodiment of “hustle + heart” during her 17 years in this world.

Both on and off the court, Mac worked hard at every endeavor, possessing an unrelenting passion to be the best she could be. But that’s not all. In the midst of this passion for all she did, Mackenzie also lived her life with extreme love and kindness. Every. Single. Day.

She was an amazing daughter, friend, teammate, sister, and mentor. With this scholarship fund, we are honoring her legacy and rewarding those who embody her Hustle + Heart.
