Join us to kick off the Holiday Giving Season on #GivingTuesday
Since 2005, CityLax’s mission has been to help establish lacrosse and educational programming inside New York City’s public schools and in underserved areas throughout the 5 boroughs. Through your donations to CityLax, you have helped us to support year-round after school programming, in turn keeping 2,000 urban kids off the streets, putting them onto the playing field with a stick in their hand, and giving them the real possibility that they will graduate on time and continue on to a college opportunity. This is the “Power of Lacrosse.”
For Giving Tuesday 2018, CityLax’s goal is to raise $5,000 to support our 13th consecutive year of Winter Clinic programs. These clinics are free and open to all NYC public high school student-athletes, thanks to donations from supporters like you. In addition to being a primary source of pre-season lacrosse instruction, these clinics offer teachable moments where our volunteer coaches are able to share their collegiate and professional experiences and mentor NYC’s high school youth. These opportunities are invaluable and ultimately can inspire students to believe that they can graduate, go to college, and pursue their dreams.
Read more about the power of these winter clinics and how Omar Alhagiko, now a Division I player at Wagner College, continues to come back to CityLax to inspire the next generation of student-athletes.
