Help Inkster Bengals Kids Get Safety Equipment
Organized by: Roseanne Wholihan
The Inkster Bengals are a non-profit youth football team based out of Inkster, Michigan. With multiple football and cheer teams across different youth age groups, the Inkster Bengals yearly financial needs are often quite costly. There are many areas where money is desperately needed to help give our young athletes access to opportunities that they would not otherwise have.
The Inkster Bengals Football/Cheer organization is a non-profit organization established in 2010 with the following mission:
- Provide our youth with organized competition in a safe environment
- Encourage physical and mental growth through competition
- Develop character and discipline
- Teach sportsmanship, respect, perserverance, teamwork and love of the game while instilling a willingness to learn
Since Inkster no longer has a public school system, with kids being bussed to outlying school districts it is much harder for them to secure transportation to and from school related teams. It is important to make sure that our kids have positive outlets that will not only occupy their time, but teach them to hone the talents that they already have along with acquiring new and important skills that will assist them through all stages of life.
With your help, we can make sure that our athletes will be able to continue putting their energy into positive outlets for the 2016 season. This registration and practice season began in April, and the actual game season goes from August to November, with championship games in December. While we know that not everyone can afford to donate hefty amounts, any amount is helpful to our kids! Spreading the word about our fundraising campaign is also helpful if a financial contribution is not possible! Check out the Bengals Nation at http://www.inksterbengals.org
Money raised through this campaign will go to meeting the following needs:
- Team uniforms for football and cheerleading
- Safety equipment for all team members including helmets, cleats, pads, and more.
- Transportation, food, and overnight lodging for away games throughout Michigan and including Chicago and Florida tournaments
- Field rental for home games
- Upkeep of practice space (Westwood Park in Inkster - lighting, lawn care, trash removal, plumbing, electrical, etc.)
