Thanks to Rachel A. for the pictures, video, interviews and editing!! Also, thanks to Tyler M. and Nabeela I. for pictures too!
AS we already mentioned, the basketball event that helped MDream was a complete success. In celebration, we decided to put together a video recap to show everyone what it was like to be there and all the fun that everyone had.
Enjoy the video and know that Athletic Supporters is there to provide future events for causes.
The first athletic charity event was a complete success.
The children of MDream benefited from a tremendous amount of support through donations, volunteer work and participation.
The event started with a BBQ and a gathering. Tequilaz, a local Mexican style restaurant, donated pulled-pork and coleslaw that was an instant favorite. From there, everyone was then invited to participate in the basketball event or cheer on the teams.
During the athletic event, those in the stands were treated to cupcakes provided from MDream Confectionery. MDream Confectionery was launched recently by a few high school girls with MDream. They provide cupcakes and baked goods.
The event ended with tired athletes and one winning team. This team was given prizes and prize money. Tequilaz also donated gift cards to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners as well. Included in the winnings were raffle drawings and prizes for best/funniest dressed team.
The event was a success and we are excited to continue the success with more events and donations.
Only a week away from Athletic Supporters holding their first event. As I already mentioned, we will be supporting MDream and providing them with an 80% contribution from all money raised. I personally don’t expect the world, but I’m hopeful that we can provide a few more happy days for the kids involved.
Anyways, if you can’t make it to Korea and still want to be apart of this, go HERE and DONATE! We would love to have as much support as possible.
You can find all the details of the event on this PAGE.
Athletic Supporters will hold it’s first event come October in South Korea. We are expecting a nice turn-out and will provide an educational message to support volunteering and conservation causes through athletics. Stay tuned as we will provide more information about the event.
In order for things to change an idea needs to be made, accepted and challenged.
The world over has made a case to put environmental policies on the back burner. Numerous political powers are insinuating that the ‘time of change is upon us’—only to backhand these comments and the people who eagerly await. Countries such as Brazil encourage others to contribute and to do their part. However, when the time comes for strides to continue; the political and powerful shy away.
Brazil is the front runner on successful environmental policies. However, and according to www.countrystudies.us, “the government has not, on the whole, been effective in controlling damage to the environment.” Their policies have been favored, but have not necessarily taken control of their potential failures.
