R.E.A.C.H. Day 2013 is Coming Soon!
Colorado Rush is excited to announce it 6th annual REACH day event! This is one of the biggest events of the year, bringing in hundreds of Rush players for a friendly 4v4 tournament. R.E.A.C.H. (Rush Equipment Assisting Children) is a program whose mission is to collect gently used soccer equipment, inventory it, clean it, and ship it around the globe to teams and clubs that need assistance.
This year, we are adding another element to the event. Junk2Gym is a non-profit company that helps youth organizations raise funds through recycling old, unwanted electronics and installs an outdoor fitness park in exchange for those items. This gym will be built on our land at Titan. The entrance fee per person to the REACH events is a minimum of one piece of soccer equipment to be donated to REACH and one piece of old electronics to help raise funds to build the outdoor gym. Obviously, the more you bring the better so start gathering up your old soccer gear and electronics!
But wait, the fun isn’t done yet! Colorado Rush will be hosting its first golf ball drop on the May 16th event at Clement Park. A helicopter will fly over (see below) the field and drop thousands of golf balls. The 30-40 golf balls that land closest to the target will win exciting prizes including Rush gear, adidas-donated Chelsea and Bayern Munich jerseys, and a grand prize of $2,000! This $2,000 prize is made possible if everyone sells 10 golf balls. Golf balls are $10 a piece with 90% of the profits going towards the club. Of those profits, 50% goes towards the player who sells the golf balls. This money can help cover a player’s uniform costs, tournament fees, etc. We are offering another way to win big in the golf ball drop. $100 golf balls will be available for purchase. Of these profits, 50% will be put into a pool for the grand prize winner whose $100 golf ball comes closest to the target!
We can’t wait to see everyone!
