2008 Olympic Silver Medalist and three-time Olympic team member Tim Morehouse launches his ambitious Fencing-In-The-Schools initiative with a special fundraising event at the Baryshnikov Arts Center on Wednesday, March 13 at 7pm. Fencing-In-The-Schools (501c3) is aimed at increasing awareness for the sport of fencing and highlighting fencing as a great fitness alternative to combat childhood obesity in America's youth while instilling Olympic ideals. The initiative will launch with a pilot program for 1,800 students at six schools in East and West Harlem starting in late March through the Democracy Prep charter school network. The March 13 event, held in collaboration with online fundraising platform Crowdrise, aims to secure funding for the initial pilot program. Event sponsor Sabra Hummus is covering the event costs so that 100% of proceeds raised through ticket sales will be dedicated to covering expenses for launching fencing schools with Democracy Prep. "The goal of Fencing-In-The-Schools is to eventually get a million kids fencing, and we know that in order to do that we're going to need people to take action to assist us," says Morehouse. "By partnering with Crowdrise, we feel we've found a great platform that will enable us to engage the energy and passion of the fencing community and local schools to help us bring fencing across the country. This effort depends on your support. Please join us!" The event will feature inspirational talks by members of the U.S. Olympic fencing team and Fencing-In-The-Schools ambassadors, including World Cup Paris Team Gold Medalist Miles Chamley-Watson and Olympians Nzhingha Prescod and Daryl Homer. A highlight of the kickoff event will be the Fencing Masters competition featuring the best U.S. fencers competing head-to-head, including Morehouse versus Homer in a battle of the top two men's saber fencers in the country. Universal Sports Network, which aired last year's Fencing Masters: Kickoff to London, will air the Fencing Masters portion of the Fencing-In-The-Schools launch event in April 2013.
