The Story

EVENT DATE: May 16, 2017

For the past five years, Fencing In The Schools has created fencing programs around the country to instill Olympic values and provide life opportunities for students in low-income communities. 

Our mission is to "Turning The Light On" for students using the sport of fencing and our Olympic Team Members as role models and mentors. 

On Tuesday, May 16, 2017 we will be honoring Project Runway's Tim Gunn and celebrating five years of programming while raising money to support and grow our Varsity Fencing programs in Harlem and The Bronx.
