This morning six America SCORES Denver students left D.I.A. for the opportunity of a lifetime.
Tuesday, May 15 they will travel to The White House to participate in the Let's Move Soccer Clinic with First Lady Michelle Obama and the Major League Soccer Champion L.A. Galaxy.
"These six students, representing three Denver Public Schools elementary schools, have demonstrated extraordinary teamwork and leadership skills and an incredible commitment to the SCORES program this year, and are excellent representatives for our organization. The invite to the White House is a life altering opportunity for these poet-athletes, and is one that they will remember the rest of their lives," said Brandon Blew, Executive Director of America SCORES Denver.
Students were selected from Gust Elementary, Newlon Elementary, and Eagleton Elementary. Funding for this once in a lifetime opportunity for DPS students was made possible by generous community donations to America SCORES and the DPS Foundation. "We are honored that the White House recognizes the importance of what we do to address childhood obesity. Our hope is that we will continue to see even more support locally," added Blew.
We are so excited to receive more pictures from their day and will make sure to post about their White House visit!
