The Hip Hop Culture Center In Harlem Presents
THE END GUN VIOLENCE RAPATHON
New York, NY—H2C2 brings Rapathon back to Harlem in an effort to help End Gun Violence. The Hip Hop
Culture Center is producing a Rapathon to support Harlem Mothers Save. A Rapathon is an event similar to a
Walk-A-Thon. A group of Rappers commit to rap non-stop for multiple hours (no cursing) for every minute that this
is successfully done funds are being raised. Monies raised will be donated to the organization Harlem Mothers Save.
Harlem Mothers Save is a group of Mothers who have lost children to gun violence and are committed to making
a difference on their slain children’s behalf. The goal is to open a new offi ce on 125th St. in NYC. Gun violence
is reaching alarming heights in our communities and we intend to be part of the cure. Many people realize how
serious this situation is and supporting us through Rockethub is a great way to help. The Rapathon will be fi lmed
and all supporters will have a custom rhyme created and included in the documentary.
H2C2 is a community based organization best known for conducting Hip Hop centric education youth programs,
sneaker battles, artist showcases & expos, art exhibitions, and corporate special events. Our most signifi cant event
has been, the record-breaking Rapathon, which has proven to be a great outlet for unsigned and upcoming artists
to spread their message. Members of the Rapathon Alumni have performed at Summer Jam, been signed to major
record labels, and have had a videos directed and produced by Ralph McDaniels.
This unique event will focus on helping to stop the gun violence that has taken over our community. Emcees will
rhyme about positive themes to draw attention and help prevent the violence challenging our streets. The Hip Hop
experience begins Saturday, April 6th, 2013 at 10 am at the Kennedy Community Center The Rapathon is open to
anyone with a love for Hip Hop and the ability to rhyme for 90 seconds straight without cursing. If you think you
got what it takes, be part of a positive community event, want to showcase your talent, or just want to be amongst
your kind of folk’, the Rapathon is the place to be. There will be no fee for emcees to participate but pledges for time
rapped are required. There will be a general admission fee for spectators which will help benefi t Harlem Mothers
Save
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.
