Sprocket Sports Announces Sponsorship of Urban Initiatives' 15th Annual Soccer Ball

Sprocket Sports today announced its sponsorship of Urban Initiatives' 15th Anniversary Soccer Ball, the non-profit's annual fundraiser to be held virtually this year on January 29. "We are proud to support Urban Initiatives in its efforts to teach life skills and lessons through sport and play," noted Rich Gallun, Sprocket Sports CEO. "Sprocket Sports' mission is to support all youth athletes, not just those who can 'pay-to-play', but also those unable to afford travel sports. We look forward to a long partnership with Urban Initiatives."

Throughout the past year, Urban Initiatives has continued to serve their participants and work with families and schools to utilize the power of play and to help youth build strong social emotional health and resiliency through these challenging times.

"Our Soccer Ball gala has been providing essential support for Urban Initiatives' programming for 15 years, and now as our students continue to learn, grow and achieve this school year, we are grateful to Sprocket Sports for their support of the event and for helping Urban Initiatives to sustain our efforts," said Urban Initiatives Executive Director Jim Dower.
