After Lacrosse and Charity Work

After lacrosse, Urbana dove into the world of fundraising after college. He is the co-founder of Next Level Lacrosse Camps. These camps are held every summer and serve to help young lacrosse players. The camps help teach them valuable skills and Urbana himself helps to instruct the players.

Jon is a big supporter of charities, and making videos to support these drives. His latest charity affiliation is with the ARAS or the Animal Rescue and Adoption society. This group is a no kill cat shelter. They take in any unwanted cats and help to find them great and safe homes.

Urbana has a crowdfunding site at GoFundMe too, in addition to his CrowdRise page to help benefit these cats as he has been a strong advocate against animal cruelty. All the proceeds that are raised from this funding, will be sent directly to ARAS to help provide for the care of these cats and to help them find great new homes.
