The Spring Into Action committee would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came out and made RAGE’s first ever day of service, a success. We had more than 70 people volunteer their time at various locations around Pleasanton, including the Valley Humane Society, the Adobe Creek Clean Up, a soccer clinic for kids with special needs, baking goods, and running three hugely successful bake sales at our sports fields. Our vision for the event was to encourage RAGE players to take time out of their busy schedules and give back. This year’s event was the beginning of a grassroots movement to encourage all of us to recognize how fortunate we are, and to give back to the community. We hope that everyone will participate next year!
As part of this project, we held 3 bake sales to raise money, collect cleats, and build awareness for Girls Soccer Worldwide, a non-profit organization that uses soccer as a vehicle to influence gender equality and female empowerment. Due to incredible support, we were able to raise more than $800 and nearly 60 pairs of cleats. Congratulations RAGE families for being part of something larger than ourselves.
