THE STORY:

Hello,

I'm running my first Marathon this year on 6th November in New York. 

I'm raising money for Play Rugby USA which is a great organization that i've been involved with since playing Rugby for New York Old Blue with founder Griff. It really is inspiring hearing the testimonies of the many young people whose lives have been changed through participation in Rugby via Play Rugby USA programs. 

I'm really pleased to be running this year after having to postpone my place in 2015 due to cruciate ligament surgery. A big thanks to those who helped with my rehab to get me ready for this year! 

PLAY RUGBY INC wrote -

At Play Rugby USA our mission is to use the unique power of rugby to inspire and empower youth, primarily from underserved communities, to go-forward and realize their true potential.

We believe that young people in underserved communities deserve every opportunity to be successful and that Rugby is a unique vehicle for developing skills that are applicable for young people to succeed in school, the community and in living a healthy life.

We serve 3,500 boys (60%) and girls (40%) during out-of-school-time hours through partnerships with 150 schools and youth organizations per year. Our participants are constantly problem solving, goal setting, and challenging themselves, through a series of structured games, physical activities, and competitions. We use these activities, and connections to their coach, to empower participants to exhibit values, beliefs and behaviors that ultimately enable them to maximize their potential on and off the field.

Our results:

85% of our participants improve their fitness

73% improve their academic performance

95% develop a trusting relationship with their coach-mentor

100% of our high school Academy students graduate on time

100% of our high school Academy seniors enroll in college
