This Wednesday, April 17th, we are dedicating the day to the One Love Foundation. The Boys Varsity lacrosse team will be playing New Hampton School at 2:30pm on Pope Field and after their game, the Girls Varsity Lacrosse team will be playing Holderness School at 4:30pm.
The One Love Foundation was created in honor of Yeardley Love, a member of the Women's Lacrosse team at the University of Virginia. Yeardley's life was ended at the hands of her boyfriend and in an effort to keep Yeardley's spirit alive and to spread awareness about the difference between a healthy and unhealthy relationship the One Love Foundation was created.
This year, here at KUA, we have done a lot of work with One Love throughout the year. Earlier this fall, our Girls' Coach, Whit Willocks, shared her story with us having been a teammate and close friend of Yeardley Love's and just last week, the entire school took part in One Love's Escalation Workshop.
Please help us on this day and every day in our continued support of the One Love Foundation. You can help us by donating and spreading the word about One Love. Help us reach our fundraising goal, of $1,000.
This Wednesday we will play with Yeardley in our hearts and on the field right beside us. We will play in her honor and for all other victims of unhealthy relationships.
Your donation will go straight to the One Love Foundation and their powerful work in communities across the country to educate young people about the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships
Thank you for all your continued support!
