• Spread Holiday Cheer, Win Cool Gear

    November 23rd 2016. It is that time of year again: the holidays are upon us. This year, why not spread the holiday cheer to a community in need and give the gift of real social impact? This year, Coaches Across Continents is excited to launch our holiday fundraising campaign, Spread Holiday Cheer, Win Cool Gear.

    The money we raise, and the funds you donate, will go towards our programs in Haiti in January, 2017.  After yet another devastating hurricane that killed many people and destroyed many schools, Haitian children are at a significant disadvantage. Can you imagine what it would be like if you lost a family member or your child had was left without an education? Think of how your world would change and how an entire generation’s future would be at risk. Sadly, many families in Haitian community are facing this devastating reality. With the lack of educational structure, there is a glaring need for extra-curricular education such as the kind CAC programs provide.  We are more than ready to step in and use the unifying nature of sport to aid Haiti’s recovery. Our teams will work with 200 coaches and will impact about 5,000 Haitian children.
