History

ZogSports was founded in 2002 by Robert Herzog, after he survived the September 11 attacks. Herzog worked on the 96th floor of the World Trade Center's North Tower as a vice president of operations for Marsh & McLennan. Herzog says he was inspired by the altruism he witnessed after the attacks and decided to incorporate charity as a major component of ZogSports. In its first season, ZogSports had 500 participants. As of June 2014, ZogSports has over 115,000 annual participants, making it the largest co-ed, recreational sports league in the United States.
