Overlake School student starts Community Lacrosse Project
Overlake School eighth-grader Garrett Dawson recently started the Community Lacrosse Project as a means to get lacrosse sticks to those who can't afford one. Visit http://communitylacrosseproject.webs.com/
According to his site: "I plan to collect the equipment by asking local teams if they have any extra unneeded sticks for donation. I am a middle school lacrosse player in the Redmond/Woodinville, Washington area, and this is a project for school, but this is something that is important to me and I feel that the local community would benefit from this.
"This project is important to me because with lacrosse growing so fast, especially in this area, more equipment means more players. Sports can also be used as means to improve one’s lifestyle and stay healthy. Playing sports is a great way for kids to learn teamwork, discipline and camaraderie. They are also a positive use of after school time and can keep people out of violence. Some don’t play sports because of cost, and that is why I’m working to eliminate that for some people."
