Our sister organization Harlem Mothers S.A.V.E. (Stop Another Violent End),which seeks to prolong the lives of Harlem’s youth by preventing gun violence, is holding its annual Rap-athon in collabration with The Hip Hop Culture Center. According to the description on their Rockethub site, A Rapathon is an event similar to a Walk-A-Thon where a group of Rappers commit to rap non-stop for multiple hours (no cursing) and for every minute that this is successfully done, funds are being raised.” Money raised will go to the Harlem Mothers S.A.V.E. efforts to prevent gun violence. The Rapathon is open to anyone with a love for Hip Hop and the ability to rhyme for 90 seconds straight without cursing.

The Rapathon begins Saturday, April 6th, 2013 at 10:00 AM at the Kennedy Community Center. The Kennedy Community Center is located at 34 West 134th Street, near the Schomburg & Harlem Hospital. It is accessible by 2 & 3 trains, Bx33, M1, M7 and M102 bus lines. For more information pertaining to the End Gun Violence Rapathon, please contact  Curtis Sherrod or Paul T.
