All Kids Play would like to thank @chicagocitysc for inviting us to participate in their inaugural golf outing and #RefugeeSoccerProgram silent auction. We'd also like to thank all of the silent auction donors, bidders and golfers for supporting our soccer program that allows refugee kids that have fled war, terror and persecution with their families to play soccer at no cost. With your generous support, we can continue to grow this program to include more refugee athletes.
Today is the last full day to bid at the All Kids Play & @chicagocitysc Silent Auction in support of our Refugee Soccer Program. Check out newly priced items at the link in our bio and consider bidding! Online bidding will continue through the Golf Outing tomorrow and close at 4 PM CST.
Congratulations to Grayson, a State and National Champion wrestler, for another great season! Grayson's single mom, an amazing supporter of her two boys, needed some help keeping him on the mat while she worked a part time job and battled stage four colon cancer. With All Kids Play's support, Grayson was able to continue wrestling for one of the best developmental programs in the country. Their story is one of strength, unity and love for each other as well as the sport of wrestling. We are so proud to support this family!
Simone Biles has helped increase the dialogue around mental health of student-athletes. A big thanks to Adler University’s Sport and Human Performance Department for attending our Refugee Summer Soccer Program this week to meet with the kids and discuss mental skills training to benefit the kids in sport, school and life. Please consider supporting our efforts to grow our Refugee Soccer Program through our golf outing and silent auction as we work to provide kids from income-restricted families that have fled war, terror and persecution around the world with a high-quality soccer program where they are learning the game of soccer and developing life skills. Check out the link in our bio!
All Kids Play is proud that one of our largest youth sports grant programs is our Refugee Soccer Program, and we are working hard to grow the program through a silent auction and golf outing in partnership with @chicagocitysc.

America has fallen in love with the comedic coaching of Ted Lasso. We all could use a good laugh with Season 2 coming out after a really difficult year. However, in addition to the well-delivered comedy, Ted Lasso teaches us a lot of great lessons about sports. This is one of our favorites. Success is about how sports, and the coaches that mentor athletes, help develop these young athletes into the best versions of themselves.
Ava has been tumbling for the last four years. This past year, she started at a new gym focused on positive coaching and athlete development. Since coming to the gym, Ava’s skills have grown dramatically with the help of her amazing coaches. She works hard, cheers her teammates on, tries everyday, and had straight A’s at school. All Kids Play is proud to help Ava achieve her goals as one of our grantees! We're also happy to share that this is our first grant awarded in the great state of Kansas!
We'd like to extend a huge thank you to the Deerfield Youth Baseball and Softball Association for supporting our Back in the Game campaign! This is a fantastic youth sports organization based in Deerfield, IL that strongly believes in the power of sports and helping others. DYBA generously donated a portion of the proceeds from their merchandise sales to All Kids Play to help less fortunate kids play sports. All Kids Play is headquartered in Deerfield, and we were excited to work with a local organization that wanted to give back. This generous donation will go toward financially disadvantaged families in the Chicagoland area to help get their kids #BackintheGame! Thank you, DYBA!
