Extraordinary Times for Beat the Streets!
Beat the Streets Lancaster would like to thank everyone for their support during the Extraordinary Give and the “A Shot In The Dark” clinic!
During the 24-hour giving day, Beat the Streets raised $10,000, which more than doubled last year’s total!
It was an amazing day capped off with a fun evening at 551 West with some great live music from Anthony Ferraro! We would like to thank 551 West and Anthony for a great night in support of Beat the Streets!
The next day, the kids in our program had the honor to learn from Anthony, hear his inspiring story, ask him questions, and see his award-winning film “A Shot In The Dark”.
Check out the Fox43 News exclusive about the clinic and Anthony’s story.
January Wrestler of the Month
The January Wrestler of the Month is Destyni Pagan!
Destyni displays a great work ethic and attitude on and off the mat. She truly loves the sport!
Destyni is in 6th grade and enjoys science class and is a great reader. Her favorite food is pepperoni pizza and her favorite animal is a lion. Her hobbies include wrestling, cooking, and conducting science experiments. When she grows up, she wants to become a doctor.
Destyni has big goals for herself as she wants to be on the McCaskey Wrestling All-Time Wins Leader Board hanging in the wrestling room one day. She started wrestling 5 years ago with the encouragement from her dad and siblings. Destyni likes making friends through wrestling and beating up on the boys when she steps on the mat.
Congratulations Destyni! We are proud to have you a part of the BTSL family!
Beat the Streets cultivates youth development in underserved communities by encouraging a desire for excellence, respect, teamwork, leadership, integrity, and perseverance through the instruction of quality wrestling programs.
Every member of the BTSL staff is here for one reason, to help the kids we serve. We chose to use the sport of wrestling to accomplish this.
The sport of wrestling helps put into perspective how hard work and self-accountability can bring forth success in all aspects of life. Beat the Streets is ready to help our youth make a positive and lasting impact in Lancaster!
