Mapston attends Odyssey Institute where he maintains a 3.8 GPA. Dylan currently runs a 501c3 nonprofit called Keepers Care for Kids which he started in honor of his cousin, a childhood cancer survivor. Dylan's nonprofit has collected thousands of toys in six years and he has donated $2,000 to Phoenix Children's Hospital and $2,000 Diamond Children's Medical Center. He also has led a fundraiser called Clean Sheets Against Cancer which includes goalkeepers from club, college, and professional teams who donate per save and clean sheet they record during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. On the field, Dylan is rostered on two RSL AZ teams and is the captain on the RSL AZ North 04 Behler Boys team.
"This is one stand out young man that is always ready to go above and beyond to help out people in need and support many different charities for the right cause," said Milos Tomic, RSL AZ North Boys Director.
