BENEFITING: HOMEGROWN LACROSSE CORPORATION
ORGANIZER: HOMEGROWN LACROSSE CORPORATION
EVENT DATE: Aug 23, 2017
I have been going to Homegrown lacrosse camps since I was in second grade. I grew up at their camps and clinics, looking up to the high school counselors and the coaches who have become like big brothers to me. I started coaching with Homegrown as soon as they let me, and have learned more about community and character in my time there than I have anywhere else. Along with it’s dedication to the entire state of Minnesota, Homegrown’s outreach into rural areas and the inner city has helped countless future lacrosse players. I have been lucky enough to work with these kids and to help them get excited about a sport that I got so excited about because of coaches at Homegrown so many years ago. The feeling of giving back the love of the game to kids in the same way that I fell in love with it as a second grader is one of the most profound feelings I’ve ever experienced. I truly believe that this permanent camp will allow more kids to both fall in love with the game and to give back than ever before. Please consider helping Homegrown make this vision a reality, and to keep giving the gift of lacrosse to any kid who appreciates it.
