Giving an estimated 2160 children the gift of play
Rush Soccer is working with One World Futbol Project to donate nearly indestructible One World Futbols to youth in disadvantaged communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America through the R.E.A.C.H. Program. With the One World Futbol, children in these communities don’t have to worry about finding a pump or destroying a ball. They can simply play.
Through the R.E.A.C.H. Program (Rush Equipment Assisting Children), Rush supports disadvantaged youth in developing countries by partnering with soccer clubs, schools, nonprofit organizations and communities to provide soccer uniforms and gear — such as the One World Futbol. By linking equipment donations to on-the-ground programs that develop youth soccer skills and promote health and education, R.E.A.C.H. is contributing to stronger, healthier communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Since the launch of the R.E.A.C.H. Program in 2002, Rush Soccer has distributed hundreds of thousands of pieces of soccer gear to more than 30 developing countries around the world. From tsunami victims and Russian orphans to the children of war-torn Iraq or HIV-ravaged southern Africa, R.E.A.C.H. has given thousands of children a chance to enjoy the game.
About Chevrolet’s Partnership with Rush Soccer
In July 2013, Chevrolet announced a two-year sponsorship of Rush Soccer. The Chevrolet bowtie now appears on 70,000 Rush Soccer jerseys across the U.S. Chevrolet is the Official Automotive Partner of Rush Soccer and is Rush’s first shirt sponsor in its 11-year history.

How to Give
Through the “Give Balls” program, you can buy a Chevrolet-branded ball for $25 that will be donated and shipped directly to children in the disadvantaged communities in
which R.E.A.C.H. works. If you’d like to get a
Chevrolet-branded ball for yourself and still
support this campaign, the “Buy One, Give One”
option is for you.
Plus, for every One World Futbol purchased through
this campaign, One World Futbol Project will donate
$5 to Rush Soccer.
This soccer season, join One World Futbol Project
and Rush Soccer in giving the gift of play!

Our mission is to bring the healing power of play through the One World Futbol to youth living in disadvantaged communities worldwide. We believe that play is a necessity of life—children need to play to learn and grow. In play, every child is a superhero, dreams can be realized, traumatic moments are temporarily forgotten and healing can begin—that is the power of play.
