Soccer Without Boundaries Builds Community Connections
Jean-Claude Munzeyamu, the brainchild of local sports charity Soccer Without Boundaries, hopes to improve immigrant children's lives through sport, while also helping them build a positive relationship between their communities and the Calgary Police Service. On Aug. 12, more than 100 Calgary kids will wind up their annual soccer camp with a “Cops vs. Kids” soccer day. The first-ever tourney is Munzeyamu's creation. “We want to show them that the police here are people you can trust,” he says. “How do you teach that to kids? They have to experience it first-hand.” Full article via Calgary Herald.
