November 2018 Rep The Red Winner: Brendan Borsuk

Congratulations to Brendan Borsuk, the November winner of our Rep the Red Award!

Brendan plays for the 2010B Red team in the club’s Travel program, and is recognized for the charitable donations he recently collected. Having visited Kenya with his family last summer and seeing firsthand how little children in other parts of the world had, Brendan was motivated to give back. Having researched sports charities online with his parents, he selected Charity Ball, an organization that seeks to put soccer balls in hands of poverty-stricken children around the world (and founded by a 10-year old boy who was motivated after visiting Africa with his family, and saw the joy a soccer ball could bring them).

Brendan asked family and friends as part of his birthday celebration to donate online to his Charity Ball fundraiser, or bring a new soccer ball to his birthday party. Through his generous friends and their families, Brendan raised $550 for Charity Ball and collected 10 soccer balls.
Brendan’s efforts represent the club’s core values – Fairness, Teamwork, and Stewardship – and are remarkable, especially for a child his age.

Congratulations Brendan, our November Rep the Red Award winner!

October 2018 Rep The Red Winner: Chris Dearie

Congratulations to Chris Dearie, our October Rep The Red Award winner!

Chris Dearie coaches a 4th grade boys Rec 2 team, and is a passionate volunteer coach who connects with all of his players, making each individual child feel like a valuable member of the team. He preaches teamwork, discipline, and respect for the rules, while helping each individual player improve his skills throughout the season. He is a positive, encouraging, and motivational coach.

Congratulations to Chris for representing the club’s core values, and instilling them in his players.

September 2018 Rep The Red Winner: Martha Raterman

Congratulations to Martha Raterman, the September winner of our Rep the Red Award!

Martha is honored for leading the 06G Black Travel team with the help of 05G Black in their efforts to raise money for the medical care of Caoilinn McLane, a former Loudoun Soccer player who is battling cancer once again after having beaten Pediatric Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) over one year ago; she was admitted to Children’s National Medical Center in late July. Caolinn’s father Jim is a longtime Travel coach for the club.

Martha and the teams organized a “Kicking Cancer for Caoilinn” fundraiser at Travel Training Academy on Wednesday 9/19, where they collected donations toward Caoilinn’s medical care in exchange for gold colored shoe laces, which help raise awareness for childhood cancer.

The fundraiser raised over $7300, and also taught our players the values of Teamwork and Stewardship toward a worthy cause.

Congratulations Martha, our September Rep the Red Award winner!
