United FC children, teens and parents will once again participate in the Wendy’s Walk for Kids, like they have done over the past few years, bringing in over 100 walkers and raising close to $2,000 annually for local children’s charities in our community.
United FC relies largely upon the generosity of countless sponsorships & private donations that help to offset the costs of training, fields and tournaments to our players. Wendy’s Walk for Kids is a perfect opportunity for our United FC family to give back and be part of a wonderful community event. We are proud to show everyone our United FC Pride and our sense of community.
To register for this year’s walk, and be part of the United FC Team, go to: http://wendyswalk2014.kintera.org/unitedfc2014
