Powered by girls, run by women, we aim to cultivate an environment that encourages authenticity, individuality, and verve. The foundation of our club is to embolden girls to be self-advocating, confident, and fearless competitors who exercise leadership on the field and in their communities. Our goal is to create a space for girls where confidence is beautiful.
On June 2, 2018 I will be running the Bryce Canyon 50 Mile Ultra Marathon in support of Verve Lacrosse. Verve Lacrosse Club is a 501c3 non-profit organization established on January 2017 by a group of five incredible women with a vision of bringing girls lacrosse to the South Bay community. We are so much more than just lacrosse. "Powered by girls, created by women," Verve aims to cultivate an environment where confidence is beautiful and encourages girls to use lacrosse as way to give back to their community. As a leader and President of Verve Lacrosse, it is my responsibility to pursue the financial resources to drive the growth of girls lacrosse in the San Jose community. Collection of these resources will go towards our scholarship fund and The McKinley Project. Since launching inaugural our season in August 2017, one of our biggest challenges has been making lacrosse financially accessible to lower-income families. To put it in perspective one full Verve scholarship is $1500 for the summer season (not including travel costs). The McKinley Project was envisioned by my co-founder Amy Yu as an outreach opportunity. Together, it is our goal to bring lacrosse to any girl who desires to play regardless of their financial status. It is our vision to provide an athletic outlet to our underrepresented girls in our neighboring communities. It is our vision to fully equip these girls completely to play lacrosse successfully and meaningfully. So far, Verve has raised over $1000 for the McKinley Project which has done the following: -Equipped 15 girls with new lacrosse sticks, balls, and goggles. -Bought a brand new goalie set (helmet, chest protector, pads, and stick) -Given each McKinley girl a US Lacrosse membership -Outfitted each girl with Verve gear
We are a 501c3 and our Tax ID is 82-1409749 Our hope is that we can continue to provide opportunities for girls of all backgrounds to play lacrosse in the South Bay. Please consider donating to my passion and the sport I love! Every $1 counts:)
