Dear Friend,

I am writing you on behalf of the Take Charge Pride basketball team of scholar-athletes. We are a premiere competitive basketball program that I founded to develop our youth(boys and eventually girls) with quality instruction, mentoring, and prerequisite leadership skills in a supportive and family-oriented environment. We have won tournaments in Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC in the past two seasons and have also competed in North Carolina and Florida.


As an affiliate program of the Take Charge Juvenile Diversion Program, Inc., we are using basketball to help transcend barriers that have historically impeded the progress of our communities and are committed to the social, emotional, mental, and physical development of our most valued asset…our children.

Your contribution and support will help defray the practice rental fees, tournament fees, travel and equipment expenses of $10,000 for the 2017/18 season. Our season begins September 8, 2016 and will conclude at the AAU Nationals in July 2018.

Thank you in advance for considering my request. Please click on the GoFundMe link below and make your donation.
