About Me

Lynne Tapper

I am a lifelong endurance athlete with the dual goal of training and racing until my bones turn to dust and sharing that passion with as many people as possible.

This may be a little known fact, but the City of Hartford is home to the most dominant squash program in the country. Trinity College has won 17 of the last 20 collegiate squash championships. They have beaten powerhouses such as Yale, Princeton and even mighty Harvard.

I was lucky enough to have a front row seat at the championship clinching match at Trinity College. This was a hard fought 5 game set between Trinity College and Harvard University.

Sitting at Trinity College this past weekend reminded me how fortunate it is for the Capitol Squash program to play on the same courts in the same building with this historic college team. Many Capitol Squash students were in attendance watching these players make history, yet again!

Capitol Squash is even more fortunate to have many of these Trinity players mentor its students throughout the year. What an opportunity for these young students to have these top-ranked players as role models!

I have less than 30 days to reach my goal of $5,000.  Here’s how you can help:

  • Make a donation of $17, $107, $710 or $1,700 in honor of Trinity College’s 17th National Championship.

  • Have your company make a donation in one of these amounts.

  • Forward this email to anyone you know who plays squash.

  • Forward this email to anyone you know who mentors a student.

  • Forward this email to yourself just in case you say, “I’ll do this later.”

​I feel very strongly about my direct involvement in this organization and the impact it is having on the kids it serves.  Please assist me in helping them continue their mission.

I know you are most likely regularly bombarded with requests for donations. Maybe that’s because you are such a giving person or that there are just so many credible situations and causes that need your support.

I hope you will choose to donate to Capitol Squash.
