2014 In Ian’s Boots Soccer Tournament

Last week , we hosted our annual soccer tournament for school children

Participants thank In Ian's Boots for sponsoring the event!

in Pespire, co-sponsored by In Ian’s Boots. Both girls’ and boys’ divisions are selected from area schools to participate. All of the students from the participating teams receive full soccer uniforms, including cleats, and food for the┬áday. The chidden come from some of the most impoverished communities we partner with and often do not have a lot to look forward to in life, so the tournament is a very special day. The kids are thrilled to receive their very own pair of soccer cleats and the uniform set at the event.
