King Cares 5K and Field Day

On Sunday, November 8, the Boys Varsity Soccer Team will be holding its annual 5K race to raise funds for the benefit of the Orphaned Starfish Foundation and the Boys and Girls Club of Stamford. Over the past several years we have raised nearly $35,000, and our goal this year is to raise $15,000. We are looking for participants, donors and sponsors to support and donate to these wonderful organizations as well as to help underwrite the cost of the race. We need your help!

The Boys and Girls Club of Stamford Mission Statement: “To Enable All Youth, Especially Those Who Need Us Most, to Reach Their Full Potential as Productive, Caring, and Responsible Citizens.”

The Orphaned Starfish Foundation Mission Statement: “Creates lasting change in the lives of orphans throughout Latin America, Caribbean and Africa by helping them develop vocational skills. We believe enabling them with these skills allows them to permanently overcome the cycle of poverty and abuse.”

How King is Connected: Each year, the King Boys Varsity Soccer Team holds a fundraiser for the Orphaned Starfish Foundation in an effort to raise global awareness about poverty and abuse in youth and provides an avenue to help in the best way possible. In addition, the Team raises funds for the Boys and Girls Club of Stamford to purchase soccer equipment, and then donates time to play soccer with the children from the Club. Both experiences are very rewarding. Your contribution will not only go to help fund programs, but it also helps King students understand the importance of community service and outreach, a key component to the King mission statement:

“We champion the development of character, self-confidence, and talent through challenging intellectual, creative, athletic, leadership, and service opportunities.”
