Congratulations to Coach Gerardo's 2007G DA team for hosting a healthy bake sale in November to benefit Children's National Hospital. Led by captains Sienna Merrill and Danicka Miller, the team set up shop outside of Williamsburg Middle School on a rainy Sunday afternoon with a large assortment of healthy options ranging from carrot oat muffins to cacao protein balls to fruit bags. The bake sale brought in over $700.
Every team member contributed by baking, staffing, and/or marketing the bake sale! When we asked the girls why they chose to donate the funds to Children's National, the captains responded with: "Our team chose Children's National Hospital because we are extremely grateful for the opportunities we have been given. We wanted to give children who aren't as lucky an opportunity to reach their goals."
Children's National Hospital recognized the team's generosity by sending each girl a teddy bear and letter of gratitude. Likewise, we at Arlington Soccer are very proud of this team for their hard work on the field and compassion off the field!
