EVENT DATE: Apr 02, 2016
Kick it with McGuffey Montessori and Miami University Women's Soccer as they team up to support adolescent health, stop the spread of HIV, and empower at-risk youth around the world...all by playing soccer!
When you register to play, 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's work in Southern Africa and throughout the world 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 1.2 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!
Can we raise $3,750 and empower 150 at risk young people? With your help we can! Check us out on Facebook and share our page!
