Check Presented to Courage Kenny!

The organization we, the DRSL board, chose to help by donating a portion of the proceeds from the Neon Shuffle was Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute – Duluth (formerly Courage Center Duluth). They have a wonderful power wheelchair soccer program for adults with disabilities. From the proceeds raised from the Neon Shuffle, we were able to donate $2151 to Courage Kenny. Last week, the board members went to the Twin Ports Rolling Thunder power soccer team’s practice and presented them with the check. With this money, for the first time, they will be able to afford a trip to the cities to play against other teams.  The expense associated with something like this is much greater than any of us thought it would be.  The transportation costs alone are nearly $1000.  In this area, there aren’t any other power soccer teams so this gives the Rolling Thunder a chance to travel and play against other teams.  We were so touched at their excitement about this trip and that they are now going to be able to do this.  We were also invited to stay and watch practice and a scrimmage! It was a lot of fun and exciting to see that even through disabilities, their love for soccer shines bright!
