Our Lives Matter Championship Tournament
Due to the recent tragedy that took place; this tournament was a collaboration of a lot of hard work by many individuals and the Goddard Riverside.
Of course, sports have a ways of bringing communities together. With the hard work and dedication by many individuals and the community; our mission was to restore faith.
Together with the community, We W.I.L.L. Thru Sports wants to continue to grow their program and keep our youth off the street.
