BENEFITING: HARLEM LACROSSE AND LEADERSHIP CORPORATION
ORGANIZER: HARLEM LACROSSE AND LEADERSHIP CORPORATION
EVENT DATE: Jul 19, 2015
Hi!! I am incredibly excited about training for and racing the NYC Triathlon in mid-July, but more importantly, raising money on behalf of the HARLEM LACROSSE AND LEADERSHIP Corp. This is an awesome non-for-profit that offers lacrosse to underprivileged children in Harlem who would never have an opportunity to play this great sport. But the program does so much more--it not only teaches kids the importance of hard work, perseverance and teamwork, but provides other significant resources including: counseling, social and behavioral intervention, college prep, and assisstance in sending some of these athletes to boarding school. This program has an incredible track record of proven success, with student GPA's skyrocketing after their involvement in this program. As someone whose life was transformed by all of the athletic opportunities I had as a child, I am trying to give back to kids that have not had the same chances--simply because of where they are born. I hope you consider a donation--no donation is too small!!
