Lauren's First and Goal
Circle Of Strength Members 2018
New York Giants consultants, Dr. Mark Weiner and Dr. Eric Simmons, have graciously volunteered their time and talents to conduct workshops on sport psychology for parents, coaches and spectators at the PA Camp. Dr. Mark and Dr. Eric have collaborated for over a decade in their work with the Giants, a range of athletes at different developmental levels, and organizations including sports teams, schools, and businesses. 2018 marked the tenth year of involvement with Lauren's First and Goal.
Members of the Franklin & Marshall College football team and parents group volunteered to staff and supply the 2018 concessions at the PA camp again, donating all proceeds to the Foundation. We are so grateful for this generous and loyal team of players and parents, who travel from all over the state and somehow manage to transform a long day of hard work into a party!
Special thanks to Coordinated Health, the official medical provider at the PA camp, for matching the Keep the Change Campaign at the PA concession stand. Over the past four years, Coordinated Health has matched over $7,000 in keep the change donations.
Lehigh Valley Therapy Dogs
Thank you to all of the handlers and beautiful dogs who come to the PA camp each year to spend time with the children and families at the Fun Tent. It is one of the highlights of the day for so many.
C-Quest 5th Graders of the Connetquot Central School District
Once again, the program continued its annual tradition of supporting Lauren´s First and Goal by hosting Patrice for an author´s visit. After learning about why the book was written and discussing the role technology played in bringing the LFG publications to print, students had the opportunity to explore the LFG website.
Katie Richards and Jill Smith of West Point teamed up for a Thirty One Gift party and luncheon. Katie donated all of her commissions from the party, more than $750 to LFG in honor of Lauren.
State College Area High School DECA and Abraham Lincoln High School DECA led by Staison George were among local chapters who hosted several fundraisers through local restaurants, car washes, and a pep rally to support projects across the state of Pennslyvania for the benefit of Lauren's First and Goal's mission. Thank you DECA for choosing LFG as your state charity!
