Shooting Touch started as a grassroots basketball program that I used to run in a small gym in the Boston Athletic Club. I believed at the time that the power of sport can change a kid's life forever. To this day, I believe even more that its influence is not only impactful, but life saving.
This is why I run...for this organization and the work, my wife and her team have ahead of her.
Shooting Touch Inc. utilizes a sport-for-social-development model that provides at risk youth with increased access to physical activity and education that encourages healthy habits and personal development.
Specifically, we use the sport of basketball to achieve two objectives: 1) promote equal access to physical activity and wellness; and 2) provide health and educational services. We provide youth with on and off the court programming that combines on court skills and lessons and off court values and education.
In Boston Shooting Touch provides 150 girls, ages 9-17, with opportunities to participate in supportive and female-friendly programming that provides off-court health education, mentorship and academic tutoring.
The money raised for this marathon will directly help the organization build capactiy and increase programming for our Boston females. Every mile, every step will make a difference.
I so appreciate your support!
