About: FIGURE SKATING IN HARLEM
(FSH) is a pioneering youth development organization established in 1997 to transform young lives and help under-served girls grow in confidence, leadership and academic achievement. Their innovative fitness and academics program supports success in school, promotes physical health, builds character and discourages high-risk behaviors. We link lessons learned on the ice - focus, determination, artistic expression and self motivation - to lessons in the classroom and life. Proceeds from this benefit will help FSH grow stronger, deeper and serve more young women than ever before.
