Soccer Marathon of Dreams
On Saturday, October 22nd, the Soccer Marathon of Dreams took place at Reynolds Park to raise money and awareness for Victoria Street Soccer and Oxfam. One of the key organizers and facilitators was fellow Charity Guy Tomas Ernst. A few other members of the group made it out to support the cause, enjoy some food, and even partake in the soccer festivities. Coincidentally, a penalty shoot-out for all to participate was about to begin just as our group arrived. Needless to say, one of the Charity Guys took won the shoot-out and took top prize- a $50 restaurant gift certificate. This anonymous individual will be taking the whole group out for appy’s at the next meeting!
When all was said and done, smiles could be seen everyone, and it was great to see some of Victoria’s homeless population taking part in positive sporting activities that could help them forget about the troubling times going on elsewhere in their lives. Let’s just hope we can help these individuals find the hope they need through positive events like this…
