Tackling Our Goal With the 11v100 Event!
The Athletes for Global Goals’ 11v100 event takes place in the State College community and focuses on empowering the youth and bringing awareness to issues that are important in the area. Youth participants will choose a cause that they are passionate about and work to raise awareness and funds through the 11v100 event. 100 members of the youth community will take on 11 members of the Penn State Men’s Soccer team. The 11v100 event will take place on October 6th, 2017 during the Penn State Women’s Soccer Game. A similar event was performed to raise awareness for Nets4Nets, a non-profit organization founded by members of the 7th grade Penn United Soccer team. This year, we hope to expand the event by involving more members of the youth community in the planning and execution of the event. In the future, it is one of our goals to have the event run completely by the State College youth!
The Athletes for Global Goals’ 11v100 event’s impact in the State College community goes without question. Empowering the youth and bringing awareness to issues that are important in the area ultimately brings members of the community together. The 11 v 100 event gathers members of all ages for a night of celebration, the celebration of wonderful charitable acts by the community. All of the proceeds will be directly donated to the Athletes for Global Goals, which in turn the Youth as Researchers will decide which youth charity the proceeds will go to.
