Thank you so much to the “Same is Lame® Foundation”.  This wonderful foundation and award has allowed Rory to take extra private classes and to perfect her passion of  Irish Dance. Since being granted this award Rory has moved up two levels of Irish dance and is now working very hard to achieve the top level. Without Same as Lame this rise in level may not have possible. Thank you so much.

I was one of the people to receive the scholarship from the Same Is Lame® Foundation. With the scholarship I was able to pay a portion of my karate tuition and register for the Florida Blitz Martial Art Tournament. That year I won two division in the state and currently will be testing for my third degree black belt in the early part of 2018. I will like to thank Same is Lame for giving me the Scholarship and I hope someone else can benefit from this too.
