It's Elizabeth Eddy here. Right now, I’m playing pro soccer for Sky Blue FC, and I get to be home in Newport for the off-season. After a recent trip to El Salvador with Compassion International, I saw how kids have such limited options, and many end up in gangs or human trafficking.
Myself and some other pros are doing a Shooting with the Pros Clinic on December 22 from 2pm - 4pm for ages 8-18 boys and girls. Please come but, if you can’t, please sponsor a kid to come. All proceeds are going to help create a safe space for girls to play soccer in El Salvador. What we raise from this clinic will be the first money toward our goal to reach $250k which will fund a safe space for girls to play soccer in 24 different locations all over El Salvador. The reason the other pros on this trip a few weeks ago with me have chosen this specific mission to create a safe space for girls to play soccer is because this sport has changed our lives. We love soccer and we get to play soccer for our jobs. It’s epic! But, in El Salvador, there aren’t even safe spaces for girls to play growing up. We are deeply passionate to help this country provide similar opportunities as our country does for girls just like us who didn’t get the privilege of being born here in America. I can’t wait for Sunday to play a part in doing something that is much bigger than ourselves!! Hope to see all of you there :)
(All proceeds go to Compassion International for the girls in El Salvador to play soccer in a safe place. Corona Del Mar HS Boosters does not receive any money from this soccer clinic.)
