GIVE & GROW – COSTA RICA
80/20 Sports – GIVE & GROW Charity Program will be taking off to Costa Rica November 15, 2014 for its very first trip to donate to those less fortunate. We are very excited to be able to provide all this fantastic gently used gear, which couldn’t have been done without the help from the families in the Chicago Land area.
We have been able to collect over 200 pairs of footwear (cleats, sneakers, flip flops etc.), over 300 shirts and shorts, 100 pairs of socks, over 30 soccer balls, 50 pairs of shin guards , a set of pugg goals and more. For kids who don’t have the right equipment, let alone proper training gear, I believe this will give hope and chance for these kids to dream to the stars.
That being said, on our travels 80/20 will be documenting everything from the drive to the Airport, flight, transportation to the event and the event itself via video and photos. Since you, the families aren’t able to take this journey with us, with this video/photo montage we hope this will make you feel like you were with us the entire time through every cleat given, shirt shared, shorts worn, ball kicked and every emotion seen.
