About Live Like Blaine
The Live Like Blaine Foundation was established to honor the memory of Blaine Steinberg, a young athletic leader who passed away suddenly during her junior year at Dartmouth. Our mission is to inspire and empower young women to become leaders through athletics.

We want to make girls FIT TO LEAD.

Harlem Lacrosse is a school-based non-profit organization that changes the life trajectories of at-risk youth through daily wrap-around academic support, mentoring, leadership training, and lacrosse instruction. We are also in the process of developing our own leadership training program which will launch in 2019.
