My Students

"Tennis is no fun, we have to stand in lines because the equipment is old and we do not have enough." "This is boring." Lets get enough equipment to keep everyone active during class and eliminate the excuses of why our students never get properly introduced to a variety of sports.

My students come from hard working families that have what they need yet don't have enough for the extras.

Tennis is considered a country club sport and none of my students are apart of a country club. They need the opportunity to be introduced to sports played outside of their neighborhoods.

My Project

Tennis can be played for a lifetime. My students need to know that you do not need to belong to a country club to enjoy tennis. I want to eliminate the standing around waiting for the few good tennis racquets, and get everyone active and enjoying the sport of tennis.

Childhood obesity is at an all time high.

Anything we can do to offer our students the ability to learn lifetime activities the better off they will be. Your donation will help me fight childhood obesity. Be a part of CHANGE.
