A Video Recap: Athletic Supporters Charity Success

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.

First Athletic Basketball Event a Success!

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.

Enjoy a few of the pictures:

Basketball Event in Gwangju, Korea

Gwangju Korean Basketball EventOnly 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.

Site Update: From the Editor

In an effort to keep originality, I have decided to focus more on content rather than amount of posts. Rather than posting content for the sake of content, I am going to focus more on interviews, site design and originality.

Before I decided to run this site, I had accumulated a few months worth of interviews and writings and was pleased with the message: volunteering and conservation awareness through athletics. 

I felt that the postings I had contributed greatly represented what was current and provided an impact. I even had time to interview those around the athletic world that represented what Athletic Supporters were all about. However, my personal workload has increased (Have Done Will Do and Say Kimchi News) and the recent postings have slid a bit.

In order to fully provide interesting information, I have decided to scale back on the amount of posts and focus more on the content of the posts. This means that Athletic Supporters will be able to provide more interviews, more investigative writings, more current information and everything exciting.

Enjoy the changes as this will guarantee a more fulfilling website.
