Orlando City Soccer Foundation, Inc
ACCESS. Six letters. Two syllables. By most standards, access would be considered a small word. But when you take a moment to consider its impact, particularly on those who don't have it, you'll realize the word is massive. Families with access to walk/bike trails, parks, and sports fields tend to be more active. Likewise, people with access to grocery stores and farmers' markets tend to include more fruits and vegetables into family meals. What happens to families and children living in low-income communities where there is little to no access to safe places to play, and the options for groceries are limited to pre-packaged snacks from comer stores? Unfortunately, the children living in these communities don't have the benefit of healthy choices and are more likely to become overweight or obese. Our goal is to level the playing field to bring soccer to underserved communities with a holistic approach to health and wellness that ensures everyone has access to The Beautiful Game.
