THE STORY:

Hello friends –

A little over 2 years ago I decided to walk away from a life that for nearly 20 years had revolved largely around soccer. Since then I’ve spent some time reflecting on the incredible opportunities that soccer provided for me. Soccer introduced me to some of my best friends, many great mentors, and opened doors that might not have been otherwise. In my search to give back to a sport that had given me so much, I was given the opportunity to run the New York City Marathon on November 5th to raise money and awareness for Grassroot Soccer.

Grassroot Soccer is an adolescent health organization that leverages the power of soccer to educate, inspire, and mobilize youth in developing countries to overcome their greatest health challenges, live healthier, more productive lives, and be agents for change in their communities. Grassroot Soccer connects young people with the mentors, information and health services, as well as empowers adolescents to make educated choices about pressing health challenges such as HIV/AIDS, sexual health, gender-based violence, and malaria.

My fundraising goal is $3,000 to help change the quality of life for of hundreds of kids around the world. I’ll be paying all of my own expenses to run this event so 100% of all donations will go directly to Grassroot Soccer! Any type of support is greatly appreciated and you’ll be helping improve the lives of children in communities around the world! Thanks for considering!
