Review for Go4thegoal Foundation, Pennsauken, NJ, USA
When we became aware of the opportunity to raise funds and awareness for kids with cancer that are being treated locally we knew we could make an impact!
When we announced to our coaches, players, and families that we were taking part in this event the support and interest was even greater than we expected. Many people are impacted by pediatric cancer and this cause seemed to really hit home for our players and families. It was also a way to easily introduce the idea of philanthropy and giving back to our young players, and many of them became our most vocal supporters! Doing this on a club-wide basis, and encouraging full teams to buy and participate, made a great statement for our club on the event day. Plus, at just $5.00 a pair to get involved it allowed anyone who was interested to participate in the event. Our parents, players, and coaches displayed great pride showing off their laces and it helped to reinforce our club’s message about the importance of being engaged in and giving back to our communities.
Finally, not only is this a great cause to support it is also very easy to administer and a fun and visible event to be a part of. We would highly recommend Go4theGoal’s Lace Up for Pediatric Cancer event to any youth sport organization that wants to give back to their community!
