NEW YORK, June 10, 2021 — Brandi Chastain and her USA Soccer teammates changed the course of Soccer in 1999 when they won the FIFA Women’s World Cup. She’s still working to change the game through her involvement in coaching, broadcasting, and lending her support to important causes.
Please join FORCE Family Office and Brandi Chastain on June 11 at 12:00 PM ET, as we host an online fundraiser for Equipped 4 Life, a charity dedicated to making the joy of sports available to kids everywhere.
When high school student, Calvin Belmonte-Ryu visited Haiti a few years ago, he was overwhelmed when he saw the devastation that still exists in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake. He was so moved by the plight of the children of Haiti, that he took the initiative to found Equipped 4 Life and launched the FIELD OF DREAMS project to raise the funds necessary to provide the Institute Edeline, a school that was created for homeless and orphaned kids, the ability to build, equip and maintain a soccer field. The benefit of youth sports to children for both their physical and mental health is profound.
Please join FORCE for an inspirational discussion about how to use the power of youth sports to drive social change and positively impact the lives of children globally. You will hear the perspective of:
- Calvin Belmonte-Ryu: Founder of Equipped 4 Life 501(c)3
- Brandi Chastain: Two-time USA Women’s Soccer FIFA World Cup champion, and Two-Time Olympic Gold medalist
- Roy Kessel: Founder of the Sports Philanthropy Network
- Steve Schechter: CEO TapIn Mobile Solutions and Chairman of Palla sport
- There will also be a chance to test your sports trivia knowledge if you are up for the challenge!
