#WiltonSoccerCares - Let’s Help Conquer Kilimanjaro!
Dear WSA family
Welcome to WSA 2020! 2020 is five years after “the future” that Marty McFly visited in one of the best movie series’ of all time (fact!), Back to the Future. Wow. That said, we are super excited for the future of Wilton Soccer and are busy preparing for another great year. Registration is open for our Winter and Spring 2020 programs at www.wiltonsoccer.info.
The purpose of the post however, is to share an opportunity for our Wilton Soccer friends and family to kick in for another great cause, an ongoing effort to do and share good that we have coined #WiltonSoccerCares.
We are encouraging our soccer family to continue the momentum that our friends at Good Morning Wilton and WHS have built around Wilton Police Lieutenant Hartman (WHS alumni!) and Lieutenant Kluk’s mission to “Conquer Kilimanjaro” in honor of The Special Olympics. The pair are departing for an epic climb to the summit of Kilimanjaro (19,341 feet in Tanzania) in less than four weeks! The Special Olympics is the beneficiary of 100% of funds raised.
Please join the effort by donating directly HERE and/or buying a “Conquering Kili” t-shirt from the WHS fundraiser HERE (which closes soon!) and also, spread the word (share and post away!)
Remarkably, the Wilton Police team has raised over $25,000, but their goal is to reach $30,000 as part of a broader team effort to raise $150,000+. They also want to “win” the unofficial competition among neighboring town Police force teams by raising the most funds and we can help them do it!
With each collective $500 the WSA community contributes, we earn a picture of the WSA flag held proudly by our Wilton Police climbers at checkpoints on the route to the summit. $500 earns a picture at Mweka Park Gate (base camp / 6,000 ft) and $2,000+ earns a picture at Uhuru Peak (19,341 ft / the Summit!).
Thank you to Lieutenants Hartman and Kluk for their dedication to our town and this great cause! Thank you to our WSA family for your support.
The WSA mission is to positively contribute to the growth of children and our community by reinforcing values such as sportsmanship, teamwork, integrity and respect for others through a range of fun and high quality soccer experiences.
This simple saying we’ve adopted represents the collective pride in our hometown soccer program. It encapsulates three core objectives we hope all can embrace and support.
Be a great teammate: Put the team first and watch all the great things that can happen. We are all one team.
Grow as players and people: learn new skills, support those around you, be the best player you can be, but also a great person and friend.
Have fun: participate, try your best, have a great attitude, enjoy the journey. Fun and friendships make everything great.
