Thank you to Board Member and Sports Challenge alumnus Ian Goldberg for hosting such a terrific event as we kick off our scholarship fundraising efforts in NYC.
Strive: How You Lead Matters is an educational non-profit dedicated to spreading the power of character-driven leadership. We introduce student athletes and coaches to an intentional way of culture-building and leading – one rooted in self-awareness and empowered by a values-based, culture-driven community. We believe the practice of leadership is a winning strategy, with results seen on both the scoreboard and in life. Nowhere is this work more evident than at our annual summer leadership academy, Sports Challenge. Our transformational 9 day fully immersive summer program for high school athletes. We passionately raise funds in order to make the experience accessible for student athletes from all walks of life. Since 2013, 22 student-athletes have made the journey from the NYC area to Sports Challenge. During that time $32,000 in scholar dollars have been awarded to these deserving NYC-based student athletes. Partner schools & programs in NYC include:- Harlem Lacrosse- The Calhoun School- High School for Health Professions and Human Services (HSHPHS)- Martin Luther King HS- Metro Lacrosse
