The Beat the Streets New York Board of Directors and Executive Director Brendan Buckley are pleased to announce the hiring of Debbie Linehan.

"We are excited to welcome Debbie to the BTSNY staff," Buckley said. "Debbie has an excellent track record, finding fundraising success in the nonprofit industry with the Girl Scouts of the USA, HEART and Keep America Beautiful. We look forward to seeing Debbie use her fundraising experience to build resources for BTSNY to grow the number of NYC student-athletes it serves and widen the lifelong impact BTSNY makes through the sport of wrestling."
