Hi, my name is Lexi Valentin and I am the founder of Run It Back. At Run It Back, we're on a mission to create an equitable community through sport to allow others to follow. We have the opportunity to invest in, nurture and revolutionize the impact of communities through and beyond sport.
This fundraiser is to make the game of basketball free to every participant in each community we reach. The goal for 2021 is to start mentorship programs, student athlete donations and basketball communities in each city across the United States. Basketball for me opened doors to education, business and now entrepreneurship. Basketball taught me life skills that will stick with me forever and has opened doors for me I could never imagine.
When I began this journey in 2019, I was able to build communities in 7 states and impact over 700 individuals in their journey and now in 2021, I plan to do more. Your contributions will help gear up each of our members in new cities by providing them uniforms, it will allow for student athletes to begin mentorship programming with young adults within their communities who once were student athletes too and lastly it'll help with travel expenses and making sure our communities are sustainable.
Just a young lady with a basketball and one massive dream, thank you for your help!
