Community Involvement

Hoping to make a difference in the global community, the team took part in the 18th Man Project (there are 17 players on the team), adopting another little boy as the 18th member of the team. Kenneth, a 6-year-old living in Uganda, was born with two clubbed feet, which has made it difficult and painful for him to walk. The team pledged to raise enough money for Kenneth to receive corrective surgery for his condition, which would allow him to walk normally on straight and pain-free feet. As part of the fundraising efforts, the team organized a neighbourhood leaf-raking event. The players went out in groups and spent the afternoon raking leaves for cash donations. It was a successful event that allowed the boys to give their own time and energy to help raise money for Kenneth – and they had some fun, too! The players also teamed up with a local market to sell boxes of fresh produce to friends and family. A portion of the sales went to the cost of Kenneth’s operation. In order to afford Kenneth’s surgery, the team needed to raise $1,190. After all of the fundraising efforts had concluded the boys had raised over $1,500, which meant there was additional money to help support Kenneth’s family. Throughout the process, the boys sent pictures and gifts to let Kenneth know that they are behind him 100% and that he truly is a member of their team!
