THE 2013 ANDREW LOVEDALE 5K

The 2013 Annual Andrew Lovedale 5K will be held on Saturday, September 7 on the Davidson College cross country trails. $25 (adults) and $20 (students) online, and all pre-registered participants receive a dri-fit t-shirt and a goody bag. All proceeds benefit Access to Success, founded by former Davidson basketball player Andrew Lovedale to support underprivileged youth in Benin City, Nigeria, through programs based on faith, sports and education.

 

THE ACCESS TO SUCCESS STORY 

Access to Success was incorporated by former Davidson College men’s basketball player Andrew Lovedale, out of his continued desire to give back to his native Nigeria and share his philosophy of sports, faith and education. While at Davidson, Andrew collected basketball shoes and practice gear discarded by teammates and took them to Nigeria each summer. In February 2009, Kicks from ‘Cats: The Andrew Lovedale Shoe Drive raised $15,000 and 10,500 pairs of shoes. It is now an annual event at a Daivdson men’s basketball game. In 2009, Andrew and a team of Davidson students, staff and alumni delivered the shoes to Nigeria. He returned to Davidson and founded Access to Success to continue impacting the lives of underprivileged youth. 

 

WHAT WE DO

• support underprivileged youth through athletic, educational and spiritual programs to help them develop the personal skills and traits necessary to reach their goals and grow as individuals of sound character and reputation.

* partner with Gospel Bible Church in Benin City to provide year-round educational and athletic programs to 100 youth and their surrounding community

* run an annual free basketball and empowerment camp at the University of Benin

• Promote and practice Christian values and morals, within an atmosphere of religious tolerance

• Provide our programs for no cost

 

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Through the "100 for 100 Campaign," A2S has a goal of raising $100,000 to build a multipurpose sports court, kitchen, library and computer center for the more than 100 children served by The A2S/Logos Academy in Benin City, Nigeria. These permanent structures will directly impact the lives of these youth and their community by providing them with access to a daily meal, a better education, and an organized athletic experience.
