"Right To Play’s values and mission align with those of High Road," said team owner Bob Stapleton. "They develop the values and benefit of sport and play in society. Team High Road focuses on clean and fair sport and upon success won by fair means. We believe in the global work of Right To Play and hope that we can help."
