This year Harlem Lacrosse is launching a challenge to the lacrosse community and beyond - supporting their students during their 1st Annual Harlem Lacrosse Classic!
Harlem Lacrosse uses the power of sports to inspire young people to overcome obstacles and fulfill their full potential. They provide school-based, full-day, year-round support for students by placing a full-time Program Director at their school sites and maintaining a constant presence in the lives of the students they serve. They are tutors, mentors, and coaches who provide individualized attention that meets students where they are and helps them reach their goals on the field, in the classroom and in their communities.
The “secret” to the success of Harlem Lacrosse has never been a secret: It is about relationships. As long-time partners of Harlem Lacrosse, the Loyola Lacrosse community is teaming up to compete in the Harlem Lacrosse Classic and we hope you will join us in making an impact! Loyola has often partnered with the Harlem Lacrosse program in Baltimore and has greatly enjoyed being a part of their program while building lasting relationships with these young men. The game of lacrosse has the ability to truly bring people together from all different runs of life and this is evident in the strong bond that has formed between Loyola and Harlem. Our program hopes to give back to this great organization and help them continue to prosper and create not only great lacrosse players, but great people.
Though we are all missing the sports we love, the HL Classic will be a fun way to connect, compete and make a difference for the youth of Harlem Lacrosse when they need us most. Loyola Lacrosse is excited to accept Harlem Lacrosse's GAME READY Challenge and we hope you consider donating and joining our team as we face off together to help change lives!
Once you have joined our Harlem Lacrosse Classic team, it’s time to get GAME READY!
Post a photo on social media from one of your favorite GAME READY moments--whether that was competing in a big game, giving a speech at a professional conference, serving your community, or any memory that shows how you get ready to do what you love. Remember, the teams that raise the most support and enlist the most donors will be our HLC Champions.
So, nominate your friends, family, teammates and co-workers to accept your Harlem Lacrosse GAME READY challenge, and make sure to share the link to join the Harlem Lacrosse Classic on your posts.
