BENEFITING: Up2Us Sports
EVENT DATE: Aug 14, 2014
As a national ambassador for Up2Us, I am proud to associate with the sports-based youth development movement that is positively impacting the lives of youth across the country. By supporting this campaign, you are helping to train and place qualified coach-mentors to serve youth in my hometown of Tampa Bay through the Up2Us Coach Across America program.
Our fundraising goal of $15,000 covers the cost of one full year of programming by a coach-mentor trained in youth development, mentoring, and violence prevention strategies. In conjunction with this effort, I am proud to host the inaugural John Henson Experience on July 19 at the Tampa Bay Youth Sports Expo. Not only will this youth basketball clinic showcase the tremendous work of Up2Us, but 100% of proceeds raised will go toward placing Coach Across America coaches.
