Potomac Soccer Association is proud to partner with Wear Blue: Run to Remember for our 2018 Potomac Memorial Tournament. Memorial Day is a time for us to come together, as a nation, to remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. In an effort to honor these heroes, all participating teams will be playing in memory of a fallen service member. Wear Blue has assign each team a local fallen service member. Fallen Service Member Assignments can be found here. Please share the info with your players and families.
Wear Blue is a non-profit organization founded by Lisa Hallet, a Gold Star Spouse. Their vision is to create globally recognized running communities that honor and preserve the legacy of fallen service members. They unite and support military and their families, veterans, Gold Star families and civilians through active remembrance and meaningful relationships. As an all-volunteer organization, every dollar donated is funneled back into funding their mission and executing their programs.
We are encouraging each team to consider making a donation of $50 (or whatever you are comfortable with) to support the mission of Wear Blue. Donations are tax deductible and can be made using the following link:
Teams can choose to simply make a one-time donation, or create a sub-fundraising page ("Become a Fundraiser" tab) to share, and allow players and/or families to donate directly. In gratitude for your contribution, Wear Blue will award the players, and coaches, of the top contributing team with a personalized prize.It is our goal to convert the miles run on our soccer fields into those of remembrance. Your participation will not only help us to support our fallen heroes and their families, but also to bring awareness to their sacrifices.
