Last years inaugural event provided coaching in all facets of football, a presentation on staying drug-free by a retired Drug Enforcement Agent and, taking into consideration the high obesity rate in our upcoming youth, strength and conditioning by specialists with an emphasis on exercise. Marcedes and a staff, which included coaches from local high schools, active college players and professional athletes, instilled the importance of education through personal interaction. Each camper received lunch, a t-shirt (listing all sponsors) and an autographed action photo of Marcedes Lewis embossed with our sponsors' logos. Over 360 youth attended and we are expecting an even larger turn out this year in addition to over 100 volunteers who helped at this special event last year.
The Marcedes Lewis Foundation is looking for Corporate, business and individual sponsorship and support. The purpose of the event is to teach kids not only about football and other sports, but about life, discipline, teamwork and the importance of education. All too many times we lose focus on what's important, but what it all boils down to is that the most important thing in life is the future of our children.
Please check out the link and hopefully you will be interested in being part of this great foundation. If you have youth interested in attending the camp there is online registration. Please register early as we expect a larger turn out this year and space could become limited. http://www.marcedeslewisfoundation.org/events.php
As a non-profit organization, any and all donations are tax-deductible. All donations are greatly appreciated by the Marcedes Lewis Foundation and the many youths it supports.
The Marcedes Lewis Foundation was established by Marcedes Lewis to support the youth in our community. His love of children and the success of a childhood dream prompted Marcedes to start this foundation.
As the Marcedes Lewis Foundation grows, we will be able to support our youth with scholarships in football, baseball, volleyball, dance, and many other areas that they may otherwise be unable to afford. The ultimate goal is to help support youths through High School and to offer a college scholarship to one deserving youth annually if all academic requirements are met.
