The Foundation was recently thrilled to receive a donation of $1,090 from the wonderful students and teachers at Lynwood Senior High School.
The funds were raised through a marathon soccer match which saw a total of 45 students and a few crazy teachers playing indoor soccer for a duration of 24-hours. The players were separated into two teams, Blue and Green, and played in two-hour shifts while the Soccer Committee Parents cooked dinner and breakfast for everyone.
The goal of the match was to raise money for the Soccer Academy and CLCRF. Over $6,000 was raised in total, a remarkable feat that matched the efforts on the court.
The match was tense with the score swinging from one team to the other throughout the entirety of the 24-hours. At one point, it looked like Blue was going to take the win after overturning a 12-goal deficit to be 15 in front. Green however bounced back and the game incredibly ended in a draw, Blue 476 – 476 Green.
We admire the resilience and energy of everyone who was involved with the marathon match at Lynwood Senior High School. This was a fantastic effort and we would like to thank the school for choosing to donate over $1000 of the funds to CLCRF.
We are also delighted to hear that the committee has decided that in the future a set percentage of their yearly fundraising will be donated to the Foundation. As we receive no government funding, we rely on this incredible generosity of the community!
