ORGANIZER: HARLEM LACROSSE AND LEADERSHIP CORPORATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2017
DAYS TO GO: 14
We like to say that at Harlem Lacrosse, we're not just an afterschool program, but a comprehensive, in-school intervention program that happens to use lacrosse as the "hook." We get kids engaged in the sport so we can help support them to do their best in the classroom and in the community. 100 percent of your donation will directly fund our middle school program sites. Each of these sites has both a boys and girls program director who runs practices, hosts daily study halls, plans trips all across the country, connects student with mentors, and helps students be admitted to the best independent schools and colleges in the country. Long story short, in the time between opening bell and the end of the day, our program directors are using the power of sport to change a whole bunch of lives, and your donation will go directly towards funding this important mission.
I am honored to be a part of the 2017 Harlem Lacrosse Marathon team and beyond excited to have this opportunity to advocate for the student-athletes of Harlem Lacrosse. Thanks for visiting my page and for considering to support our Marathon team.
Shoot low, Aim High!
