Hi! My name is Sajeev and I am helping Level Ground Mixed Martial Arts raise $1,000 this holiday season!
For a little background, Level Ground serves at risk youth in inner city Boston using Mixed Martial Arts (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai) as a channel for kids to focus and gain access to education and work opportunities. I've been training in both arts for a number of years and understand the transformative effects it can have first hand so when I heard that my friend Ali, a friend and training partner, was founding an organization to help kids in inner city Boston get off the streets and onto the mat to focus their lives on education and work, I knew I had to try and help in whatever way I could. It has been amazing to witness the growth and changes in the kids whom I have gotten the chance to meet and train with. Through the organization, we've seen kids commit themselves to a postive paths forward such as getting jobs as athletic trainers or going to college.
That is why I believe that every dollar from the this fundraiser is making a difference in these kids lives. I hope you'll help me reach my $1,000 goal as part of the overall $20,000 goal by the end of the year!
