I've been working out at InnerCity Weightlifting (ICW) for some time now. ICW is much more than a gym. It's an innovative program that creates equal access to opportunity for our city's highest risk young people regardless of their socioeconomic status.

InnerCity Weightlifting reduces youth violence by connecting proven-risk young people with new networks and opportunities, including meaningful career tracks in and beyond personal training. They use the gym to replace segregation and isolation with economic mobility and social inclusion, disrupting the system that leads to urban street violence. In fact, 90% of ICW's students report an increased sense of hope for the future. The importance of hope cannot be overstated – for many of ICW's students this is the first time in their young lives that they see a path forward that doesn't end in death or jail.

Getting to know my trainer, TY, has had as much, if not more, of a positive impact on my life than I could ever hope to have in his. That's why I created a fundraiser to support ICW. I've seen firsthand how transformative the program has been for those it serves and I invite you to join me by pledging your support to ICW.

Just a small donation will go a long way to helping me meet my goal for InnerCity Weightlifting Inc
