Homeless World Cup in DC this Weekend
A deep breath after a busy few weeks. Home in DC to go the wedding of a close friend. She is the first of any of my friends from high school or college to get hitched. Weird.
If you are in DC this weekend, check out the Homeless World Cup action. My great friends Jeremy and Pat are very involved in the 'sports for social change' movement in Uganda, and have organized the Ugandan delegation for the past few years, bringing young leaders from Gulu and Pader to Capetown and then Copenhagen.
From Friday, June 27 – Sunday, June 29, the Homeless USA Cup, a program of Street Soccer USA, will take place in Washington, D.C. at the Old Convention Center site at H and 11th Street, NW. More than 100 players representing 11 cities from across the United States will play for a chance to win the Homeless USA Cup, and the opportunity to be selected to the US National Team that will represent the United States at the Homeless World Cup in Melbourne, Australia in December. Admission to the event is free and open to the public.
