Thank you for visiting our site and for your interest in getting to know more about our youth empowerment mission – iconic32 Sports Lab – a 501(c)(3) non-profit launched in July 2014 with my two friends from college, former NBA player and NBA Cares Ambassador Felipe Lopez and renowned creative director Sergio Morales. Our personal and collective philanthropic goal, since the first day we all met at St. John’s University, has been to help and empower as many disadvantaged children as possible across the globe– and to date the iconic32 Sports Lab has impacted more than 5,000 lives of student athletes that have enrolled in our program. We have recently partnered with Felipe’s Foundation and his Ministerio de FE initiative in his home town of Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic to help impact the youth through sports, education and faith. We are asking for your support to help us continue our commitment to fulfilling this purpose. We are reaching out to friends and family in our ecosystem to help us reach our goal of raising $250K to help rebuild the Community Center, Club Cultural y Deportivo Gregorio Urbano Gilbert G.U.G, which includes building classrooms, technology labs,a fitness center, playgrounds and creating academic leadership and college readiness programs.
As a quick background – iconic32 Sports Lab is a performance enrichment platform created to help underprivileged youth enhance their athletic, academic, innovative and civic potential, in order to maximize success on and off the ﬁeld. Since iconic32 Sports Lab’s inception, we have provided coaching, mentorship, and leadership training. We have served as a platform for youth to network, to motivate each other, and to share ideas in an ecosystem that fuels progressive thinking, and in turn, action.
The Felipe Lopez Foundation aims to enrich the lives of youth through a combination of physical education and wellness, as well as academic and leadership programs that support beyond regular classroom hours. The Foundation is head quartered in the Bronx, NY and in the Dominican Republic.
Your generous support will help us continue to build our youth international leadership programs, as well as provide academic scholarships and support to our youth in need.
Thank you in advance for supporting iconic32 Sports Lab’s mission.
