Wow. When Virginia Rush decided to host their 1st REACH Collection we knew they would be generous, but no-one could have predicted this. Over 1000 pieces of gear and equipment including 170 soccer balls, 229 pairs of cleats, 154 pieces of equipment, 485 various soccer gear items and 80 full Rush Uniform kits were collected in one weekend. Unbelievable. But it doesn't stop there.
Collecting, sorting and packing are just the beginning of what Jeff Gump and Misty Scanlon contributed to getting the donations to Liberia Rush. Together, with the help of Mark Jolma of Cascade Rush, who's employer Echo Global Logistics is generously providing shipping at cost, all the boxes were weighed, measured, placed on pallets and shrink wrapped.
With so many people coming together to donate, others to volunteer their time and staff to help coordinate assistance through their employer, there is no question that Rush Soccer provides a unique and unprecedented character building opportunity for our players.
Each club can be a part of REACH and every Rush player can share their love of the game with children around the world. Ask your club director or contact Rush Soccer's Global Outreach Director, Kris Downs, firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how you can be part of Rush's worldwide humanitarian effort, REACH,
