On June 9, 2012, the James Lee Foundation will present the third year of celebrating three events, the James Lee Day which is the 2nd Saturday in June, the James Lee Youth Football Camp at Glades Central High School and the Muck City Fest at Pioneer Park.
In 2011 the Foundation was established with a mission to improve the quality of life for underprivileged kids in Belle Glade. James Lee, weighing in at 6’4″ is an offensive guard for the Tampa Bay Bucs for four years. At 26 years old, this is a fine example of giving back to his community and sticking with his roots.
Last year over 250 kids, age 10-17 attended the free one day camp which is from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. It is for all local youth and advance registration is required. The kids will get a free t-shirt, lunch, gift bags and instructions from James Lee and many of his NFL friends
The Foundation is seeking any donations. You can contact Cathleen Laporte at 917-523-0491 regarding the Camp. No amount is too small. You can check out more at www.TeamLee.org
