THE STORY:

My personal story has two lessons:  

(1) If you believe strongly in a cause, do whatever you can to help. 

(2) Always listen to your mother.

 

During my senior year of high school I was approached by my mother who said she had found an outstanding opportunity for a summer job.  The organization, MetroLacrosse, combined two passions of mine: Giving back to the local community and coaching lacrosse. I applied for a camp counselor position at MetroLacrosse's Summer Bounce, an overnight camp that takes place in New Hampshire. At the camp educational initiatives were interwoven seamlessly with lacrosse activities as children learned not only how to pass and shoot, but also how to RESPECT one another. Responsibility, Effort, Sportsmanship, Participation, Enthusiasm, Communication, and Teamwork are all traits that each member of MetroLacrosse strived to exhibit day in and day out. After five exhilarating days and nights jam packed with athletic, educational, and team building activities, I knew I had found a special organization.

 

Throughout my four summers with MetroLacrosse, I witnessed the inspiring role this organization plays in the lives of many inner city youth. I ask you to help support this important cause that gives so many young adults the opportunity to succeed both on and off of the field.

Sincerely,

 

Matt O’Connell
