Sam Lawrence | Saturday is for the Speedos

Thank you for visiting my Santa Speedo Run fundraising page! 

I appreciate your contribution and encouragement to run in my favorite Speedo for a great local cause! 100% of your donation supports The PlayBall! Foundation's Boston middle school sports programs for underserved youth. As many of us can personally relate, team sports opportunities can inspire kids to succeed in middle school, high school, and life.

Play Ball's mission today is to create and expand team sports opportunities for middle school age urban youth who are at a pivotal time of physical and emotional development. Through the experience of team sports, PB seeks to inspire young athletes to succeed in school, become engaged in their school communities and develop life skills that will make them better prepared to enter high school and beyond.

While the image of me running through the mid-December streets of Boston in a Speedo is a laughing matter - the people who run this organization year round are incredibly passionate and the results of their efforts are tangible and powerful.

Your donation is going directly to the 2017 sports teams and to kids who grow up to be like Austin and Tomell (See Boston Globe article here).

Your donation will get kids suited up on the field, on the court, and on the ice! 

Funds raised: $2,075 of $2,000
