BENEFITING: INTERNATIONAL INSITUTUE OF S P O R T INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 27, 2010
Dr. Fred Sorrells of the IIOS, Haitian national soccer team captain Pierre Bruny, Dr. Ed Sakiewicz and Chris Campasano, members of the IIOS contingent, assembled in Haiti Aug. 12-15 on a mission trip to meet members of the amputee community, and to begin forming the amputee national soccer team. Dr. Sorrells helped to form the Haiti Amputee Football Association, and under association guidance, amputees were invited to participate in try-out sessions for the national team.
“The final selection of the Haiti national amputee soccer team includes three victims of January’s catastrophic earthquake,” said Dr. Sorrells, Founder and President of IIOS. “The opportunity to participate on the national amputee soccer team is incredibly therapeutic, especially for the recent amputees.”
"This is part of an amazing relief and healing effort for these individuals and the country of Haiti,” said Dr. Sakiewicz. “We must raise the funds to secure passports, visas, equipment, travel and accommodations for training sessions in the United States and travel to the World Cup of Amputee Soccer in Argentina, so we are calling upon our communities in Texas, Arizona and worldwide to support this cause.”
