Berks Ajax FC continued its support of the Boyertown TOPSoccer program recently, presenting the community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities with a check for $780 from proceeds collected from its first annual Comedy Night/Beef-And-Beer.
The club presented the check to Boyertown TOPSoccer co-director Kevin Reilly at its January board of directors meeting. The money was collected as part of a 50/50 raffle conducted at the Comedy Night/Beef-And-Beer.
"Our mission as a club is to provide all children of the community with an opportunity to play soccer at a high level at an inexpensive cost. Although these aren’t the same issues for TOPSoccer, I feel that it is our responsibility as a club to make sure that all children are afforded the opportunity to play soccer, no matter whether they have a disability or not," said club president Scott Didyoung.
"That’s just what we believe in as an organization, and it an obligation we look forward to fulfilling each year for the children of the community."
Berks Ajax has made annual donations to the Boyertown TOPSoccer program annually each year the club has been in existence, and annually supplies the program with "buddies" to assist in the program. Berks Ajax players are encouraged to participate in the program as buddies each year as a way of spreading the love of the sport to the children of TOPSoccer.
