Skidmore Soccer Spreads the Joy
Skidmore College hosted their 8th annual Soccer Without Borders youth camp over Spring break!
"Soccer Without Borders, with its motto “playing for a change,” is an international program that raises funds for the academic and physical education of young people living in difficult circumstances. The mission, as stated on the organization’s website, is “to use soccer as a vehicle for positive change, providing under-served youth with a toolkit to overcome obstacles to growth, inclusion, and personal success.”
Skidmore College and its charity partner Positive Tracks are maintaining a Soccer Without Borders chapter in Uganda. So far, the Skidmore soccer teams have raised over $30,000 for the Uganda program. The $8,000 raised this year alone will run the Ugandan chapter for a year and a half." Read the full article here
