Positive Coaching Alliance - New England
WHAT is the Harvard STADIUM STAMPEDE?
A CHANCE TO SWEAT. It’s a stadium workout, you can run, leap, or walk up and down one, two, or all thirty-seven sections of the iconic Harvard Stadium. Complete with pump-up music and 300+ fun people. New this year, an on field option for those who don’t love stairs. Everyone is welcome.
FOR GOOD. Your registration fee of $20/$25, and any funds you choose to raise will help raise awareness and support for the nonprofit Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) whose mission is to develop Better Athletes, Better People through sports done right. PCA gets and keeps kids in the game by combining top coaches’ best practices with sports psychology to develop powerful resources for everyone involved in youth sports—coaches, sports leaders, parents and student-athletes. Fundraising is 100% optional, but check out our incentives below.
LEADERSHIP WORKSHOP FOR MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT-ATHLETES.
Before you sweat, at 4 pm, PCA will host a special workshop for middle/high school student-athletes on “Authentic, Effective Leadership” led by a PCA trainer and featuring a panel of current and recent college athletes.
Share this opportunity with your community OR Help us identify members of your community who may want to develop or flex their leadership muscles, bonus if they are U23 and eligible for the match.
New Balance sneakers, ice cream, competition, character-building and so much more is at stake!
