CITY SPRINGS COMMUNITY ATHLETIC COMPLEX RIBBON-CUTTING CEREMONY

*Baltimore Ravens, Baltimore Curriculum Project, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and the City of Baltimore to Hold Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony for New City Springs Community Athletic Complex

*

On Monday (9/15), the Baltimore Ravens will join the Baltimore Curriculum Project, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and the City of Baltimore and the NFL/Local Initiatives Support Coalition (LISC) Grassroots Program in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new City Springs Community Athletic Complex in East Baltimore. The complex will offer more than 2,500 youth every year a safe place to exercise, play team sports and participate in after-school activities.

Funding for the City Springs Community Athletic Complex was initiated in 2012, when the Baltimore Curriculum Project received a $200,000 grant from the Baltimore Ravens as part of the National Football League/LISC Grassroots Program. LISC identifies local, nonprofit, neighborhood-based agencies that have an interest in building or refurbishing football fields in schools and parks in underserved neighborhoods.

The City Springs Community Athletic Complex, adjacent to City Springs Elementary/Middle School, will strengthen the community by keeping children off the street and in productive, healthy and character-building sports activities. The complex features a 60-yard purple, artificial football field that will be used for multiple youth sports including football, baseball, soccer and lacrosse. Additionally, parents and other members of the community will have an opportunity to exercise on the new running track that surrounds the field.

The overall vision for the athletic complex is to utilize athletics as an instrument aimed towards helping boys and girls become men and women of empathy and integrity who will lead, be responsible and positively impact their communities.

Baltimore Ravens players and cheerleaders will participate in a football skills clinic for over 500 students following the press conference.
