I am Physical Education teacher and softball coach for a special group of girls in the South Bronx. My girls who I consider like daughters have endured what most adults have yet or never wish to experience. From molestation to rape to making cuts on their arms to hide the pain, there are times where I commend them for their strength and fortitude. Since most of my girls do not have fathers, they look to me. I raised funds to send my girls to Florida State University so that they could train with their softball team and receive mentoring. I have attached a link to a video/documentary of this trip. This team has grown together so much and I would love you to see their accomplishments. Dealing with stomach cancer, my team has given me the strength and support to stay positive.
I am currently searching for those who are able to support the Lady Tigers in our efforts in returning to Florida State University in 2016. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time in reading this.
