HEALTH for Youths Soccer Team!

Proud to announce the soccer league at IS 27 in Staten Island that we are part of officially kicked off yesterday with games. It is supported by Major League Soccer (MLS) and NYCFC. Our team is the only nonprofit team. We paid for all of their registration fees. Our kids may not have the best cleats, shin guards or uniforms…but they definitely have one thing…heart. Go HEALTH for Youths…oh yeah, we need a name too. Thank you Coach Michelle and Director DeLacy.
