Raffle Donations Benefit LGBT Athletes In Schools

You've probably been wondering where all that money from our recent raffles and charity tournaments has ended up. We wanted to let you know that, with your help, Big Apple Recreational Sports was able to raise and donate $4,000 to GO (Generation Out)! Athletes. GO! Athletes is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating athletes, coaches, administrators, and fans to foster athletic communities in schools that are accepting of ALL, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

This donation from Big Apple Recreational Sports will allow GO! Athletes to proceed with many programmatic projects this year, most notably printing literature like pamphlets and guides on starting LGBT student-athlete groups on campus. It will also allow GO! to be present at more universities and colleges for speaking events and conferences, and allow GO! to be present at the International Olympic Committee meeting in late October to represent LGBT Athletes. 

Thank you to all of the Big Apple members who helped make this possible!
