Jon Urbana is popularly known as the Lacrosse player who earned the honorable title Defensive Player of the Year in 2004 via the Colonial Athletic Association, but in recent years he has extended his presence and continues to make an impact in the Colorado community. Most notable of his achievements is his founding of the Next Level Lacrosse Camp. The Lacrosse camp gives young players the opportunity to grow their skills, all the while being coached by Lacrosse professionals, including Jon Urbana himself.
Jon Urbana has recently started a fundraiser at crowdrise.com. Funds raised by the charity will benefit the Animal Rescue & Adoption Society of Denver, CO. ARAS is a no-kill cat shelter that takes in unwanted or misplaced cats and kittens. The shelter houses and cares for the cats until they are adopted out to their forever homes. In a state where over 17,000 animals were euthanized last year, no-kill shelters like ARAS serve as a way to deplete those numbers. However, most shelters are non-profits and rely on the contributions made by generous groups and individuals. Anyone interested in contributing to ARAS can make a donation online at www.crowdrise.com/jonurbanascharitydri/fundraiser/jonurbana.
