On Saturday evening, November 11, 2017, we hosted the second annual LEAD (Leadership. Education. Athletics. Dreams.) Event at YSC Sports in Wayne, PA. 250 friends and supporters gathered for a night of food, dancing, beer pong, corn hole, and, most of all, fun. Blaine’s spirit, joy and laughter filled the room. The event raised $160,000 for our FIT TO LEAD programming, including our annual Captains’ Practice Leadership Conference, Harlem Lacrosse Philadelphia, and our Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy scholarships.
Christine Page, Harlem Lacrosse Program Director at the Finletter School in the Olney section of Philadelphia, spoke to the crowd about the incredible impact Harlem Lacrosse has had on her students in just three short months. Finletter teacher James Groff also spoke about the positive effect the Harlem Lacrosse program is having on his students. But the real highlight was hearing from Harlem Lacrosse student athletes, Kadiatou and Elijah, about how Harlem Lacrosse has influenced their lives.
Thanks to all who joined us for the evening and supported Live Like Blaine’s effort to help young women become FIT TO LEAD.
