Lehman College Turkey Trot

To benefit the Lehman L.I.F.E. (Leaders Involved For Everyone) Alternative Break Program

A fundraising campaign for Lehman College

Make an exponential difference

Spreading awareness is a great way to help support our cause.

The Office of Community Engagement and New Student Programs would like to invite you to participate at the Annual fundraising drive and Turkey Trot Fun Run/Walk to benefit Lehman L.I.F.E. (Leaders Involved for Everyone). The one-mile run/walk will occur on Wednesday, November 15th, 2017 at 12:00 PM, registration opens at 10:30 AM on the South Field of the Lehman College Campus.

This year the School of Education is reaching out to friends and departments across campus. Instead of a competition, they are aiming for the biggest collaboration and unity of administrators, faculty and staff in support of our students. With your donation, we can surpass last year’s fundraising goals!

All proceeds will provide students with travel scholarships for Lehman L.I.F.E. Alternative Break programs. Each year they serve communities in need and develop a sense of global citizenship.

CHECK OUT THESE LEHMAN L.I.F.E. 2018 TRIPS! (Future trips to Puerto Rico, Houston and other Hurricane stricken areas will be planned when the infrastructure is in place to support volunteers)

Winter Break 2018: Students will travel to Apopka, FL to volunteer at the Hope Community Center with migrant farmworkers and undocumented youth.

Spring Break 2018: Lehman students will volunteer in Nicaragua with Global Medical Brigades providing support, leading workshops and learning from medical professionals in the community.

Summer of 2018: 

For the first time ever, Lehman L.I.F.E. will be tied to a Credit Bearing course: A writing intensive senior seminar focusing on "Global Africa" that will take the place of an LEH 400 level course. It will be be jointly listed with a 1-credit Seminar course in which students will then have the opportunity to travel to Malawi and build Lehman's own school with the community!
