THE STORY:

Soccer has and always will be a large part of my life. When I was young it provided me with an enjoyable and positive atmosphere to keep me out of trouble, meet friends, and build a relationship with my family. As a growing child it taught me about the process of success, teamwork, leadership, and how to set and achieve goals. Throughout my high school years I saw soccer as an opportunity to help my parents pay for the cost of a college education. Now, as an adult, my soccer experiences have put me in a position where I can earn a living by passing these values on to young people through the sport I love.

Using my first (and possibly last) marathon I hope to raise funds in support of Soccer in the Streets. All kids deserve a chance for success.
Soccer in the Streets empowers kids who lack opportunity
by using soccer as a medium to make them employable adults.  Imagine what life would have been like if you or your children did not have the opportunity to attend extracurricular activities.  What would our lives look like today?  Please sponsor me to help bring that opportunity to at risk children.
