Support Vassar College as we raise money for Grassroot Soccer at our annual Lose the Shoes tournament, a barefoot, 3v3 soccer tournament for charity!
When you support VC Lose the Shoes, you also support Grassroot Soccer, an international adolescent health organization that educates, inspires, and mobilizes young people to overcome their greatest health challenges and live healthier, more productive lives. Grassroot Soccer connects at-risk young people with the mentors, information, and health services they need to thrive, and empowers adolescents to make educated choices about pressing health challenges such as HIV/AIDS, sexual health, gender-based violence, and malaria. To date, Grassroot Soccer has reached more than 1.3 million young people in 50 countries.
All funds will support Grassroot Soccers work in Africa! Every $25 raised empowers one young person with life-changing education programming.
Here's how it works: when you register, you'll make a $15 contribution. We then ask that you rally 2 or 3 friends or family members to match your $15 so that by tournament day every player has raised $50!
