Why do you enjoy working with CAC? – “Soccer.  This sport has consumed me since diapers.  It raised me, provided me with extended family, showed me how fun it is to win and how much it hurts to lose, and taught me to be a good person.  For the better part of my life this game owned me – and now I am owning it.  I have always known that the power of soccer extends so far beyond the game and finding an organization that truly harnesses this power is exciting to say the least.  CAC’s unique approach to sport for social impact allows me to use this crazy passion as an instrument of change and I am so grateful to be part of the team.”
