RYDF Summer Fun-Raiser Brings Needed Support to USA Team Juniors and Young Professional Players

Daniel-and-TatoThe Reaching Your Dream Foundation is a tax exempt, nonprofit  which promotes health & fitness and the long term viability of sports like racquetball by supporting players with diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.  The foundation helps these young athletes with hope and opportunities for personal and professional growth while they pursue their dreams.   RYDF was created to help these young athletes achieve success on the court and in life.

RYDF just finished an awesome two-day Fun-Raiser, held at Mariner Square Athletic Club in Alameda CA.  We had over 90 players in five shootout divisions.  Most of the food was donated to help the foundation raise money for its three causes: juniors, and men and women players interested in improving personally and professionally.  Part of the proceeds were designated to the four Northern California juniors who made the USA Junior Olympic Team destined for the Dominican Republic in November.  (Attached is a picture of two of the four players: Nikita Chauhan and Julian Singh).  Each player’s family will receive $500 for each child.

The foundation depends on the generosity of people from our local communities and outside our community who believe in our Vision and Mission.  Please visit our website at www.give2rydf.org and “Like” our Facebook Cause page at https://www.facebook.com/reachingyourdreamfoundation?ref=hl  and consider donating to help support the dreams of these very talented younger women and men players.

Thank you.

Mike Lippitt, Chairman, RYDF
