This month's Fundraising class is 2/22 and it's going to be a good one. We're going to raise a little money to help an organization that makes it possible for kids of all backgrounds to attend NMC by offering scholarships and grants to those who could use a little help.
The NMC Foundation is important to me because I'm a proud alum of NMC. After high school, A lot of my friends took off to four-year universities, while I stayed home at NMC. At first, I felt like I was missing out on the "real" college experience. In reality, I quickly learned that NMC offered the same experience that my friends who went away from school were getting, except probably even better because our indoor soccer scene was off the chain. NMC offered a community of people who I still remember and value today. Attending NMC prepared me for the "big school" experience better than I could have ever predicted. In fact, the quality of instructors was equal to or better than the ones I had at a school that was three times as expensive and hundreds of miles away from home.
Helping students of all varieties to have the NMC experience that I did is something I'm pretty stoked to do. You can help out by attending class at Yen Yoga & Fitness - I'll be donating all the money I earn from class that day to the NMC Foundation. If you can't make it to class, consider making a donation by visiting their website.
