50 States | 50 Lawns 2 Starts In
On May 10, 2017, I did something that I had never done before; I traveled to all 50 states (driving to 48 and flying to Alaska & Hawaii) mowing lawns free for the elderly, disabled, single moms, and veterans. The purpose of this trip was to make more people aware of the Raising Men Lawn Care Service and to encourage kids to accept the 50-yard challenge. On May 7th, 2018, I plan to do the same, but this time things will be even bigger in three key areas.
This time around I have three main goals: (1) to teach kids about lawn mower safety, (2) talk to kids about the importance community service, and (3) encourage kids to take up the 50-yard challenge. In addition to going to each state mowing lawns, I plan to stop at schools and community organizations to talk to kids about lawn mower safety, community service, and the 50-yard challenge. I also plan to have at least 1-2 kids at each lawn, if possible. I believe it is critical that kids get involved with doing community service and move away from playing video games and staying inside the house all the time. What better way to do that than to accept the 50-yard challenge! Also, I plan to make stops along the way to encourage the 60+ kids who have already taken the 50-yard challenge.
What Is R.M.L.C.S
Raising Men Lawn Care Service is the union of an ordinary yard maintenance service and the commitment to establish an inspiring program to keep our youth (girls & boys) on a positive path while learning and understanding their value in society. RMLS provides free lawn care to our elders, those who are disabled, single mothers and our veterans, who do not have the time, resources and/or money to manicure their yards.

The 50 YARD CHALLENGE
We challenge you to cut 50 lawns FREE for the elderly, disabled, single mothers, and the veterans in your town. If you accept this challenge, all you need to do is send us a photo of you holding a sign saying “I accept the 50 Yard Challenge”, and in return, we’ll send you your white RMLCS shirt along with shades & ear protection to get you started. For every 10 lawns cut, you will get a new color shirt.
• Once you cut 10 lawns you get an orange shirt
• 20 lawns earn a green shirt
• 30 lawns earn a blue shirt
• 40 lawns earn a red shirt
• 50 lawns earn a black shirt.
Once you reach 50 lawns, we will come visit you, cut a few lawns with you, and give you different color Raising Men Lawn Care Service shirts. We will also give you a brand new lawn mower! Let’s make a difference together by mowing one yard at a time!
