THE STORY:

Hello my friends,

   So, with the big 4 0 less than three months away, a personal challenge to myself to reach by then, and a 30 day fitness challenge by another friend, Tyler Kane Whitman (who has gone through a complete body transformation this year and has been an incredible inspiration), I've opted to take the #LEVEL30 challenge, get myself fit(ter), and help raise money for this worthy cause.

The Challenge:

-Workout 30 times between September 15th and October 15th

-Take a FUN picture of each workout, and post it on Facebook (and instagram if you like, but it doesn’t allow links to your funding page) with the hashtag #LEVEL30 (and any other hashtags you enjoy).

Rate how you felt about your workout from 1-5 in the post. Your rating of that workout is the dollar amount you are trying to raise from people that day.

My Goal is $150 and I have decided that I will match whatever I get up to $150 at the end of the challenge.

What we're raising money for:

UPRISING NYC INC -

School is back in session - and it's time to LevelUp!

The Uprising is presenting TWO DAYS of LevelUp Academy Workshops this Fall!
PERSONAL LEADERSHIP - Saturday, October 15
CREATIVE COLLABORATION - Sunday, October 16

Help us give 50 young people access to this program FREE OF CHARGE.

LevelUp Academy is a unique program designed to equip first generation college students with the 21st century skills they need to thrive. In our Information and Service Economy, success is defined by the ability to collaborate, problem solve, adapt, and lead. How frequently do students have a real-world opportunity develop and practice these critical skills?

LevelUp Academy addresses this soft skill gap by pairing teen participants with adult “Sidekicks” in hands-on, high-energy workshops. By spending a day forging a peer relationship with an adult professional by playing games and facing obstacles together, teens emerge from LevelUp Academy with increased confidence and resilience, and an expanded sense of self.

LEARN MORE about LevelUp Academy

--- What Are You Supporting? ---

Your financial support ensures that all teens are able to participate free of cost - a value of $450 scholarship for each student. Donate to underwrite the costs of:

  • professional facilitators
  • a delicious healthy lunch
  • supplies and resources

Any money raised over our goal will go into a fund to support a cash award scholarship for eligible participating teens.

--- Who is LevelUp Academy For? ---

LevelUp Academy is for high school juniors and seniors who will be the first in their family to go to college. These “first generation” college students face a unique set of challenges. In fact, research shows that these students are 30% less likely to complete a bachelor’s degree than their peers who have a parent with a college degree. LevelUp aims to help set these young people up with the tools to succeed in a college setting.

Thanks to your donations, every scholar attends LevelUp Academy free of charge, and upon completion of the workshop, students can apply for a cash scholarship up to $1,000 to apply towards their education.

THANKS FOR HELPING OUT!

2 U w/ love

Rich
