Merck Consumer Care’s Active Family Project has partnered with US Youth Soccer to encourage families to Play For A Change this September.
The program promotes being active together as a family through soccer, while also making a positive change in the lives of those less fortunate. To celebrate Youth Soccer Month, the Active Family Project will donate up to $15,000 to US Youth Soccer to go toward soccer equipment and training in underserved communities by donating a $1 for every like, comment or share on the Active Family Project Facebook page from August 19 through September 30, 2014.
- Create an account on Athlete.com
- Track your running, walking, biking, etc.
- Raise money for your costs and to grow soccer in underserved communities
US Youth Soccer is partnering with Athlete.com, an innovative social fundraising platform, to provide a fun, active and effective way to raise money to offset the costs to participate in youth soccer.
Players, coaches and administrators can participate by creating a free account and tracking their running, walking, biking or other exercise through the per-mile fundraisers. In addition to raising money for their own costs, 5 percent of every dollar raised will go to support US Youth Soccer’s efforts to expand soccer in underserved communities through programs like Soccer Across America.
