The Lewis Palmer High School soccer players have partnered with the Make-a-Wish Foundation to sponsor Keagan, a local boy with Cystic Fibrosis which requires ongoing daily treatment. Their goal is to raise funds to send Keagan to Disneyworld. The boys from the LP soccer team have asked people to make pledges and, for every goal scored this season, they earn money to make Keagan’s wish come true. Each goal is worth $60 now and they have 36 goals so far, which puts them over $ 2,000. If anyone would like to make a flat donation or make a pledge they can e-mail Ann Heer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The boys from the LP soccer team are doing this to help give something back to their community and help a little boy who won’t be able to play soccer like they have,” said Ann Heer. “The boys made a video featuring Keagan to help get the school get involved with what the team is trying to do. We hope that the community will get involved and help Keagan realize his lifelong dream of going to Disneyworld.”
A highlight this season was when Keagan came to their game on Oct. 2 and they presented him with a jersey and made him an honorary player of their team. The team played Vista Ridge and were down at the half. After encouragement by Keagan, the team came back to win the game 3-2 in the second half. Tuesday, Oct. 16th at 6pm is their last home game scheduled for the season.
