Dear Family & Friends,
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I am excited to share that this November I will be running the TCS NYC Marathon as a part of the Harlem Lacrosse Marathon Team. I have seen first hand the impact that this program has had not only on the community, but also on the student-athletes themselves. I am honored to be a part of the 2019 Harlem Lacrosse Marathon team and am beyond excited to have this opportunity to advocate for the student-athletes of Harlem Lacrosse. Please consider contributing to this powerful organization and cause - every contribution is appreciated and no donation is too small.

Harlem Lacrosse is a 501(c)(3) school-based youth services organization whose mission is to provide opportunities, relationships, and experiences that activate the skills and traits to put youth on a path to success as students, athletes, and citizens. Our innovative sports-based youth development model helps students break the cycle of poverty by providing wrap-around programming in a safe, structured environment that includes daily study halls, mentoring, push-in academic support and tutoring, admissions counseling, leadership training, service-learning, career exploration, college trips and character-building lacrosse instruction and competition. Harlem Lacrosse was incorporated in 2011 in New York City to serve low-income middle school students. Since our inception in 2011, we have served our students with an intentional program design centered around four core goals: 1) academic attainment; 2) social-emotional growth; 3) deep personal engagement; and, 4) on-time school advancement. Each element is cultivated and reinforced in our wrap-around programming, which includes athletics, academics, socio-emotional learning and cultural enrichment.
