|Marko & Nick unloading the gear|
An inspiring story of two brothers who want to make a difference in communities that don't look like theirs!
Meet Nick and Marko, Steck Elementary School Student Council leaders, who organized and operated collections of gently used soccer gear for America SCORES Denver through their school and the teams at Colorado Rapids Academy.
Nick and Marko's messages to the SCORES participants as shared by each:
Message From Nick:
Hi SCORES SOCCER STARS! The students from Steck Elementary School collected 92 items for the students at Scores Denver including: 24 pairs of cleats, 2 pair goalkeeper gloves, 13 pairs of shin guards, 6 pairs of socks, 15 t-shirts, 14 shorts and 18 soccer balls, for you to use during recess and after-school. I hope you have lots of fun playing soccer at your schools, and score a million goals too! Go SCORES!!
From Marko and the Rapids Youth Academy:
Hello America SCORES-Denver students! Last week the Rapids Academy boys and girls held a soccer gear collection drive for your club. We are sending a big box of brand new cleats, socks, balls and soccer bags too. Have fun juggling, making great moves while dribbling, and score two million goals!!

America SCORES Denver staff members are so appreciative of these boys' efforts! It's especially wonderful because our spring programming has a community focus and each of our teams are currently involved in service-learning. The voices of youth in Denver communities are powerful and inspiring!
|Thanks to Colorado Rapids Academy for "kicking" in the gear bags, |
socks, and a box full of brand new cleats!
