BENEFITING: CITYLAX INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 06, 2012
HOURS PLEDGED: 35
We were fortunate to learn to love the game of lacrosse through the Doc’s NYC Lacrosse program. We have set up project reLAX to benefit CityLax, Doc's NYC's sister organization started in 2004-5 to bring lacrosse to inner city high school students in the five boroughs. Like Doc’s before it, CItyLax has changed the face of lacrosse in our city. CityLax has helped launch and support 30 varsity lacrosse programs for boys and girls in 20 inner city high schools. CityLax is also trying to expand its support of student athletes off the field, through mentoring and scholarships, to help them be successful in high school, college and beyond.
Through project reLAX we have met with players from Eagle Academy, a school team CityLax supports. On their behalf, we are collecting equipment- pads, gloves, sticks and lacrosse balls to redistribute to the team. If you do not have equipment to donate, consider making a donation to CityLax through our fundraising page on crowdrise.com.
