BENEFITING: COAST TO COAST SOCCER NATION
EVENT DATE: Mar 09, 2013
My 34th Birthday Wish:
This year, I would like to reach out to those friends and families who have been instrumental in my life. My 34th wish is to celebrate a new beginning by asking all of you to help a child’s WISH COME TRUE. Instead of receiving a birthday gift, I would like you guys to help me, help others.
Coast to Coast Soccer Nation Inc., DBA FoxSTAR United Futbol was created so I could use soccer to educate and inspire youth. The program I've started gives each child an opportunely to develop their skills as a player and as a student-athlete in the classroom. I’ve always believed education is important, so we have partnered with Sylvan Learning Center of Culver City which offer's tutoring to our students which allow them to keep their grades above average. The dropout rate in Los Angeles County is estimated at 20.3%. After hearing this, I decided to make difference in the community by providing this service.
In 2012, I received a called that no one wants to hear: “Your uncle Daryl is dying”. Witnessing him pass away after a long battle with cancer was very challenging. I remember him being a funny, humble and devoted man who always went out of his way to help anyone in need. His actions, lifestyle and support further encouraged me to create our Sun Child awareness program because more than 3.5 million people are diagnosed each year in the United States. Thus, I'd like to utilize the sport of soccer in order to teach underprivileged and underserved youth the importance of education and skin cancer prevention. Our curriculum provides information on the dangers, risks and preventative measures of skin cancer.
So I’m reaching out to my friends and family members to help my birthday WISH come true. By donating $34 dollars by March 9th, you can help me to fund our program.
