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.

  1. Create an account on Athlete.com
  2. Track your running, walking, biking, etc.
  3. 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.
