MINNEAPOLIS - University of Minnesota Golden Gopher wrestling head coach J Robinson will share his perspective on his 37 years of coaching, camps and building leaders on Thursday afternoon's Smile Network International "From A Man's Perspective" monthly luncheon.
Throughout his tenure as a coach and a role model for student-athletes, Coach Robinson has not only focused on the success of the student-athletes on the mat but he has also strived to help them become better people off the mat as well.
Through a partnership between J Robinson Intensive Camps and the Smile Network, Robinson has given back to the community. The Smile Network is a Minnesota-based non-profit, humanitarian organization that provides life altering, reconstructive surgeries and related health care services to impoverished children and young adults in developing countries.
Each summer, youth wrestlers who attend his camps have the opportunity to donate money to the Smile Network cause by donating their Camp Store Bucks or giving their change after purchasing items in the camp store. At the end of each summer, J Robinson Intensive Camps matches the total amount collected and donates it to Smile Network International. The donation goes directly to the organization and helps change the lives of children all over the world.
The luncheon will take place on Thursday, Jan. 23 at 11:30 a.m. at Crave (Downtown Minneapolis). Individual tickets are $35 and a table of six can be purchased for $210. To register for the event, please visit the Event Brite event page. For more information about J Robinson Intensive Camps or the Smile Network, please visit their websites.
