As part of the Bowdoin Men’s Lacrosse Team’s Action Plan against racial inequity and injustice, we will be running a 5K fundraiser on November 14 in support of Harlem Lacrosse. Harlem Lacrosse is a school-based non-profit that provides full-day, year-round mentoring, academic support, admissions counseling, leadership training, service-learning, career exploration, and college trips to students living in underresourced communities in New York, Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Los Angeles. You can read more about thier mission and impact here.
Bowdoin’s relationship with Harlem Lacrosse began in 2016, with students from Harlem Lacrosse-Boston visiting campus to learn more about college life, and the partnership has since grown into an annual occurence. Many Bowdoin Men’s Lacrosse alumni have gone on to become Program Directors for Harlem Lacrosse, including Dan Hanley (‘14) and Peter Mumford (‘17) in Boston, as well as Sam Denious (‘19) in Harlem. You can also read more about Kendall Rogers ('21) joining Harlem Lacrosse as a summer intern here!
