US Open: The Cinderella Story

BENEFITING: UBUNTU EDUCATION FUND

EVENT DATE: Jun 11, 2012

Zayd Hammam

THE STORY:

I'm playing in the US Open (tennis) this year. OK, it's the qualification to the qualification, to the qualification (literally) of the US Open. But it's no joke. I'm really playing...and at the National Tennis Center.

I have 2 goals at this tournament. The first goal is to win 3 games (You read correctly...it's games, not set or matches.  The winners of these tournaments are typically folks who were #1 players at D1 schools). The second goal is to raise $2,500 for Ubuntu Education Fund.

Since founding the organization while still a college student, my good friend Jacob Lief, has fashioned Ubuntu into a paragon of turning underprivileged kids into world leaders. Ubuntu provides world-class health and educational support to the orphaned and vulnerable children of South Africa. Go to www.ubuntufund.org to learn more.

What I'm asking is that you help me support Ubuntu by sponsoring me walkathon style. For every game I win, I'd like you to pledge a certain $ amount (you can cap it if you believe that I can actually win).

My first match is at 10:30AM on June 11th in Flushing, Queens.  I'll be playing against someone that appears to be an up and coming Uzbeki champion (and college student).  Please donate and come and cheer me on!

Sorry I took this long. Was trying to make sure I didn't get hussled like in the old backgammon days. Hope you taught the Uzbeki elementary school boy a life lesson in Tennis. All the best. 5 years ago
