I am writing to you on behalf of The Extra Heartbeat Foundation as we put together another season of inspiring football work. In its inaugural season the 3-day academy had 150 participants 6th grade -12th grade and was able to provide 7 area athletes scholarships totaling $10,000 to help them pursue their dreams. We are eager to not only achieve the same level of success, but to surpass it this year. The 2014 edition brings with it some exciting changes as we are adding a Youth Camp for students in the 3rd-5th grades with YSF certified coaches. Our estimate is that we will be able to reach nearly 300 youth this year!
Our mission remains the same, to empower young men to become positive and disciplined student-athletes. Our vision however, has grown and we hope to expand our impact. To do so, we are in need of some outside assistance.
We realize that we cannot continue to impact the growing number of athletes without the generosity of individuals like you. We are asking you to consider a donation to our foundation. All donations will go towards helping the academy endow scholarships for those athletes who demonstrate the quality of having ‘that extra heartbeat’. Donations of any amount are deeply appreciated. Your donation of $500 will be publicized on our website as well as signage during the academy. A donor envelope is enclosed for your convenience.
