It was one of the more formal emails I’ve received in a while. With each sentence bookended with “sir” and “thank you”, I was thoroughly impressed.
Especially coming from a 14 year-old kid.
Alessandro, a high school freshman in Staten Island, heard about Street2Street’s upcoming summer event schedule and wants to be a part of it.
His questions spanned from location to time, roster to frequency. Then, with his final question, he asked the most troublesome one of all.
How much does it cost?
“I just want to know the price now so I can start preparing for it. I don’t want to miss it!”
If you’re like me, you’re probably smiling at this point. Because like me, you know being a part of Street2Street will never cost Alessandro a penny.
At Street2Street, we believe that every kid in every neighborhood deserves the opportunity to feel like a Champion, from winning a trophy and being coached by someone who cares to playing basketball with friends and simply feeling like a kid again.
Alessandro doesn’t have to save up for any of our 25 events on Staten Island this summer, he just has to show up.
For every kid like Alessandro who can be a part of the 2021 Tournaments, thank you. It is because of you we can provide this opportunity week after week, year after year.
