Chris Burns' Fundraiser:

Soccer Without Borders - Granada

THE STORY:

Hello Friends and Family, This summer I will travel to Granada, Nicaragua with “Soccer Without Borders” (SWB) to serve as a coach and mentor for aspiring and accomplished female soccer players. Soccer is the most popular sport in the world. However, in many developing countries, young girls are often not allowed or not given the same opportunities to play the sport. Like most kids in the United States, I have been fortunate to experience the benefits that soccer brings such as camaraderie, teamwork, self-worth, and the development of community. All of these benefits help create healthy and productive societies. This is why I am so excited to work and share my cultural experiences with the people of Nicaragua. I would like to ask for your financial support to help the mission of SWB. Your contributions will go directly toward helping create safe spaces for young girls growing up in the underserved communities of Granada. With only 10% of the world’s soccer players being girls, they often miss out on the benefits of playing team sports such as: improved mental and physical health, better academic performance, and making healthier sexual choices. SWB creates safe spaces for girls where they can reach their goals on and off the field, by creating inclusive communities and celebrating the benefits of gender equality. Thank you in advance for considering supporting SWB as I embark on this trip. I will be chronicling my experiences and sharing them with friends and family as I return from my trip. Thank you very much, Christopher Burns
