A few weeks back Jack Andrews hosted a soccer tournament in Iowa to support Charity Ball. He and his team played in the tourney and sported some Charity Ball Tees to raise awareness. I asked him to write up a quick overview of the event. Here’s what Jack had to say…
My name is Jack Andrews; I am from England and currently play soccer and go to school at AIB College of Business in Des Moines, Iowa. I am always trying to find ways to give back through soccer. When I found Charity Ball, I knew I could help in someway.
On April 27, I organized a small indoor soccer tournament in the name of Charity Ball to raise awareness for what a great job Ethan is doing as well as his family and friends. We had 6 teams from around Iowa competing in the tourney. There were 2 groups of 3, the winners of each group went to a final and the winner was crowned.
It was a great event and by providing T-shirts, flyers and stickers to the participants, I feel we raised great awareness for the kids who need it the most. A big thanks goes out to Carlos Acebey who is the Coach of Waukee Soccer Club in Iowa for getting the location sorted out, Lexy Rees (Utah) and Emma Barber (Iowa) for the tournament photos and organization. I would also like to thank Marc Hill, Jacob Richards, Nicky Poulter, Scott Jumeaux and Darren Marcelo for representing Charity Ball.
Jack, thanks for helping support Charity Ball and raising more awareness for kids around the world who are unable to play the beautiful game with a real, quality soccer ball.
