Hello Family and Friends!
I hope this letter finds you in the best of spirits and health during the Covid-19 Pandemic. As each family is different and every one of us are searching for a sense of normalcy. I would like to introduce the hardest working 8u Football Team this side of the Equator; The Park Heights Saints! We have searched high and low for the best and the brightest on and off the field. Our Scholars, who happen to be amazing football players, need your help.
Our program is based in Baltimore City. Each year we support the athletic and educational goals of our players through the support of our dedicated volunteers. This year our team has the opportunity to travel to and participate in the American Youth Football (AYF) National Championships in Kissimmee, Florida. Participating in this event is a life experience that many children in the city cannot afford. The hardship that has hit many of our families during the pandemic only adds to our request for help. We have an estimated cost of $680 per player.
Your donations will be used to help pay for the travel, meals, rooming accommodations and entertainment for the team.We are hoping to raise money for our team of 8 year old boys and coaches to travel to Florida. Due to the pandemic, many things are different for us this year. We started our season later and there are restrictions on the type of fundraisers we may have, so we are reaching out to our fans and supporters through Go Fund Me.
In the words of Tony Dungy, “You can’t always control circumstances. However, you can control your attitude, approach, and response. Your options are to complain or to look ahead and figure out how to make the situation better.” We have chosen not to complain but to push forward towards obtaining the championship in Florida. We have adjusted our attitude to fit our current circumstances, approached every day with caution to keep the team safe during these times, and now we depend on our support system, our family and friends to help us create a response. We will forever appreciate your support.
Thank you so much for your consideration!!!
