Troy Record: At-Risk Youth Will Have Chance to Participate in Free Soccer Program

The Record published a story about this week’s launch of “Soccer for Success,” a free after-school mentoring program open to all children in the Capital Region. Led by the Troy Boys & Girls Club, the program was made possible by a $61,500 gift from St. Peter’s Health Partners and a $33,500 grant from the U.S. Soccer Foundation. The funding will enable more than 1,000 at-risk youth to participate in the program.

From the story:

“Nothing is more important for the future of our community than the health and well-being of its youngest members,” said James Reed, president and CEO of St. Peter’s Health Partners. “We are proud to support Soccer for Success in the Capital Region, and to help children learn important life skills and healthy habits that will stay with them throughout their lives.”
