The Grassroot Project (TGP) is the main initiative of : Athletes United for Social Justice: Using Sports to Change the World.
What a spectacular 2018 Hexagon season we had! Cast and crew, old and new, Production and front of house all worked together with fabulously supportive audiences and sponsors to produce a highly entertaining show, and hugely successful charitable campaign. We all feel so gratified to be able to present such a big check to our worthy beneficiary, The Grassroot Project. The $46,871.08 on our check had already grown to over $48,000 by the time we left the theater Saturday, thanks to audience donations and our Hexagon partner match program. This is an immense boost for the TGP program, and will make a boundless difference to their good work with DC middle schools and the lasting benefit to our community.
TGP uses the power of sports and the platform of athlete role models to educate, inspire, and mobilize youth to live healthy lives. TGP aims to combat the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Washington, DC by educating at-risk youth about the virus, prevention of its spread, stigma and general sexual health.
