BENEFITING: HARLEM LACROSSE AND LEADERSHIP CORPORATION
ORGANIZER: HARLEM LACROSSE AND LEADERSHIP CORPORATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2017
Harlem Lacrosse works. It encourages girls and boys in some of the most difficult situations to focus on their school work and their futures through an almost constant, in-school Lacrosse-based support system. Though I have never played lacrosse, I have seen the impact this program can make first hand travelling on weekend trips, attending games and personally tutoring and advocating for one of the program's students. Though it is not possible for the program to send every one of its students on to prep schools and college, Harlem Lacrosse gives all of its students the opportunity to build necessary skills and join a community that champions hard work in both academics and athletics. It is an honor to run as a team member with this amazing organization!
