When most teens are focused on sports or girls or video gaming, one local boy has chosen to use his time and energy to make a difference. Thirteen-year-old, Lucca Incerpi, has teamed up with Texas Relief Warriors as a book drive leader. He has worked with local businesses and raised over 4,000 books for an elementary school in DeRidder, LA. who lost all their books and library in Hurricane Laura.
The champions that helped him:
- Burn Boot Camp Cinco Ranch & Memorial City
- Mrs. Donuts in Memorial
- The Briarwood School in Spring Branch
When Lucca isn’t rounding up book donations, you might find him open water swimming. He has already swam Alcatraz and will be swimming a double crossing of La Jolla Cove, CA this December!
He is a youth dyslexia advocate and uses his open water swim to help kids with dyslexia find their strength (Swim for Dyslexia)
This young man is on an excellent path and is a true testament to how much one person can do to make a difference in this world. Start in your own backyard and do what you can to help. No matter how small. It will not be small to the person who is the lucky recipient of the gesture.
When he grows up, Lucca wants to be a marine engineer or a naval architect. Whatever path he chooses, the world will be a better place for it.
Lucca will deliver the books to Carver Elementary School in DeRidder. Look for more pics in the coming weeks!
