Help us start NEW Fencing programs in Harlem! Fencing in the Schools is a 501c3 foundation I started to help bring the great sport of fencing to kids around the country to fight childhood obesity and instill Olympic ideals. It begins its mission to get 1 million students fencing in schools by 2023 with 1600+ students fencing in 6 Harlem schools starting in late march! We also have the goal to get 10,000 kids by 2013-14 school! I needs YOUR help to get our country fencing!
On March 13, Fencing in the Schools is hosting its kick-off event in NYC at the Baryshnikov Arts Center (450 W 37th St New York, NY between 9th and 10th Ave) at 7pm featuring talks by 2012 US Olympic team members and two special Fencing Masters matches featuring top ranked men’s saber fencers Daryl Homer Vs. Tim Morehouse and top-ranked women’s foil fencers Nicole Ross Versus Nzhingha Prescod!
These matches will also be aired on national TV in April on Universal Sports!
