A big thank you to the supporters, guests and Rugby Champions who attending our amazing launch in New York on February 13th. 

Atlas USA Chairman, Laurence Geller and Milbank host and Atlas USA Board Member, James Cameron, spoke about the uplift that rugby had given to their lives, and their wish to see their advantages given back to support the next generation.

We were honored to be joined by Rugby Champions from the USA and the UK, who already give their time, skills and inspiration to help young people around the world, and have joined Atlas USA in its mission to help 1 million children across the Americas.

A charity auction conducted by BBC TV celebrity Philip Serrell, himself a former amateur rugby player, raised over $60,000 giving a fantastic boost to the founding gifts of the USA Board Members. This allows Atlas USA to hit the ground running and the first Board Meeting is coming up where the majority of these funds will be used to help children in the poorest communities.

 Children's Projects

We were inspired to hear from Coach Shane Young about the impact that the Atlas Foundation has had in supporting the rise of educational standards and reduction in violence and crime for the children of Memphis. We will follow their lead and invest in the leadership and coaching that has so inspired hundreds of boys and girls, and the universities and colleges that are now offering them new scholarships. You can learn more about this programme from our Atlas USA site
