TRN Announces Community Service Initiative
Share:    

I love sports and I love writing, but my true passion in life is helping others. It started at an early age by volunteering with some of my teammates.

I realized the power of using the athletic platform for good and saw how much giving back benefitted both parties. I never wanted to stop.

I’ve met people from all walks of life and bridged divides that blossomed into lifelong relationships.

In that spirit, I am launching “First Serve For Community,” a community service initiative at TRN.

The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) has designated October as its Community Service Month, and it’s time for junior tennis to have a similar plan of action.

Only I’m not limiting it to just October. Any time you want to volunteer is the best time.

It doesn’t matter how big or small the goodwill gesture. It could take an hour or it could take an entire day. You can do it alone or do it with teammates and friends.

Whatever you do, take a photo and send it to me at [email protected]. Include information about what you did and where you did it.

I will post the photos on our social media platforms and possibly include them in an article on our site at various points throughout the year. This is meant to be open-ended and meant to be on your own terms.

Let’s help inspire others to join the effort and make a difference in the world by giving back.
