Hi there,

My name is Rembert Browne and I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. One day in 1993, after a fly ball hit me in the face during tee ball practice, my mother took into the neighboring building (McGhee Tennis Center) to get ice. There, she met William “Coach Wink” Fulton.

I had nothing to do that summer and Coach Wink told us about his summer camp. And just like that, 25 years ago -- The Summer of '93 -- the beginning of the rest of my life.

I attended that camp from age 6 until I went off to college, the last few years as a camp counselor. In the 90s and 00s, Coach Wink had a dream of sending the camp, an all-black group of kids from Southwest Atlanta -- many of whom could not afford camps elsewhere -- up to the US Open.

That dream did not come true when I was a kid, but starting five years ago the first trip finally happened. And even though the trip has become a tradition of sorts, the money has always been tight. This camp, and this man -- coach Wink -- have been responsible for the safety and happiness of thousands of black kids in Southwest Atlanta for over two decades, many of whom have gone on to college by way of tennis scholarships and a few even turning pro.

Because of how important this camp has been to so many, I want to help out. And in that, an idea: a fundraiser to pay for next years US Open trip.

But there's more: to get people excited about donating, I'm going to podcast for 24 straight hours, with the hopes of raising (at least) $24,000. The podcast, hosted by Anchor, begins at NOON ON THURSDAY and will conclude at NOON ON FRIDAY. I’ll have guests coming on—friends from all corners of my life—for 30 minutes segments.

It will be very fun. It will be extremely exhausting. And I can’t wait.
