I HAVE A NEW TEAMMATE...!
My daughter Emily has committed to run the race with me!
We need to raise another $435 for this great charity!
I have accepted the challenge to raise funds in support of Soccer Without Boarders by running in the Falmouth Road Race on August 20, 2017.
As most of you know, I am a former soccer coach, player, administrator and referee. Supporting a soccer charity is perfect for me... I feel I get to give back to the sport that has given me so much.
Soccer Without Borders uses soccer as a vehicle for positive change, providing newcomer refugee, asylee, and immigrant youth with a toolkit to overcome obstacles to growth, inclusion and personal success. On August 20 runners will race in the beautiful Falmouth Road Race to support our program in Boston! Launched in 2012, Boston is SWB’s newest program. SWB Boston provides free, year-round, after-school programming to 300 newcomer youth in the immigrant community of East Boston. In a team-based environment, youth participate in a combination of our five activities: soccer, academic support, cultural exchange, team building and civic engagement. Please consider supporting me as I raise funds for this great organization.
It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause by making your tax-deductible donation online below. Whatever you can give will help - it all adds up! I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress...
