OnTrac Partnership Continues with the Colorado Rush

Denver General Manager Roy Yurt has been helping Donna Pettigrew and the REACH (Rush Equipment Assisting Children) program on and off for the last 6 years. 

REACH

is able to support disadvantaged youth in developing countries by partnering with the Rush soccer club, schools, non-profit organizations and communities to provide soccer gear. By linking equipment donation to on-the-ground programs that develop youth soccer skills and promote health and education, REACH is contributing to stronger, healthier communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

OnTrac Service Provider Jeff Olmsted delivered packages for the Colorado Rush Soccer Club charity. OnTrac was able to deliver more than 30 boxes to the Navy in San Diego. The Navy then transported the boxes to several different countries around the world.

Inside the boxes were all types of soccer gear (soccer cleats, socks, shin guards, balls, shorts and jerseys). All of these were going to Third World countries with kids who don’t have or could afford this type of equipment.
