The countdown is on...

In Orange County, NY there is a great need for a youth-focused, community-backed sports complex. Brothers Greg and Mark Jaloszynski, both graduates of Pine Bush High School and long-time residents of the area, have stepped up to the challenge! Five years ago Greg and Mark formed 12th Rock Sports, a 501c(3) non-profit organization which utilizes leagues, camps, and community outreach events to instill positive character traits into athletes, preparing them not only for next level athletics, but for life.

But 12th Rock is about so much more than sports. At 12th Rock we are committed to teaching children about teamwork, respect for authority and sportsmanship. We are focused on creating opportunities for youth in the Northeast to increase their character through camps, sports, and missions. At the heart of all we do, 12th Rock is about using sports to engage and empower this generation to be tomorrow's leaders.

For nearly two years, Greg and Mark have been in pursuit of bringing to the area a central hub for youth sports; a complex that can house nearly any sport, including rising to meet the immense need of the track community. This is a huge project that will have an unbelievable impact on the Middletown area, greater Hudson Valley and Tri-state areas… And the countdown is on.

Phase 1: Purchase the Land

Deadline: June 16, 2017
The Need: $250,000

The property has been found, sale price has been negotiated, all the due diligence has been completed, the site is now engineered, town approvals and appeals have been granted, and the closing date is June 16, 2017.

Phase 2: Building a state of the art indoor track, turf, and court sports complex, debt free!

The complex will house all 12th Rock/Upward programs the community has loved for years and allow for expansion. We'll host local and state track meets, basketball and volleyball tournaments, soccer, wrestling, baseball, lacrosse, and more. There will be multi-purpose rooms suitable for group fitness. It will be a site for after-school programs, urban missions, and community outreach. The possibilities are endless and countless youth and families will be positively impacted!

Lead donors jumped in with $75,000 in the first 4 weeks; leaving $175,000 to be raised by the closing date. If just 175 people raise or donate $1000, we're there! Donations are tax deductible and the impact of your gift for generations to come is priceless.

Will you step up and accept the challenge?! Let's unite as a community to make something awesome happen!!
