About GRASSROOT SOCCER:
This is our first year as an Official Charity Partner of the NYC Triathlon! We are honored to be a part of this great race and have so many wonderful athletes joining us to fight HIV and AIDS.
Grassroot Soccer (GRS) has graduated over 500,000 youth through our HIV/AIDS education program. GRS is moving forward with the official goal of reaching 1 million youth educated and empowered by World Cup 2014.
Our Triathletes are key to helping us reach the 1 million by 2014 goal. With every step, every hour spent training, every contribution they secure we are getting closer to an HIV-free generation!
