Seattle Sounders FC's forward Steve Zakuani launched his own non-profit on Monday. It's called Kingdom-Hope. The non-profit is intended to help individuals become great achievers, both on and off the soccer pitch. The program will have soccer camps, a scholarship fund and life coaching opportunities for participants.
At SCORES we love to hear about soccer being incorporated into programs about more than the world's game. Programs asking people to be work harder, work for others or programs helping at-risk individuals gain the confidence to succeed in life. We try to teach these values with everyone of our poet-athletes and it sounds like Zakuani will be doing something similar.
It's also an incredible honor for SCORES to be a Community Partner with such a great organization like the Sounders FC. SCORES has worked and is working with players to make our program have more impact on our students. Players like Taylor Graham, who is now a board member, and Steve Zakuani show that professional athletes can help many without a great strain, and will with or without being asked.
Congratulations to Zakuani for his tremendous efforts to help others and good luck during this year's season.
