$1,000 towards $1,000

Join me in supporting real change. 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.

This organization means a lot to me and to my network in Boston. It's easy to take success for granted when everything seems to just go your way, but that is not a reality for a lot of people in our inner cities. Help break the cycle with a donation to InnerCity Weightlifting so they can keep providing a worthwhile career path and network for proven-risk young people. ICW's student trainers are meeting consistently with clients for 1:1 personal sessions as well as with top tech companies to lead corporate training sessions. They become friends & family to new networks of people who otherwise would not even bump into them. I've been lucky enough to train with the man in the video linked below (who now has loads of clients in Boston), and with many of the other trainers during corporate sessions, and I can confidently say they are the best training experiences I've had anywhere.

I'd like to raise $1000 for the ICW family this holiday season, and I know scores of you are feeling the need to connect with those unlike yourselves. Wanna put your money where your mouth is?
