About

MSU Denver Men's Soccer Team
The MSU Denver Men’s Soccer Team is going global with a 7-day service-oriented tour of Costa Rica in July 2019. This once-in-a-lifetime trip will allow players and coaches to have the extraordinary opportunity to contribute through community engagement projects, play competitive soccer games, and have fun experiencing another culture! 

From base camp in San Jose, the team will visit the mountains of Coronado, plantations bordering the Braulio Carrillo National Park, and orphanages there. They will participate in neighborhood activities with locals, including youth soccer clinics. These service projects will allow players to gain a humbling global perspective and to give back to the communities that they will be visiting. Players will also learn how soccer brings people together across cultures, when they play several exciting games against professional teams of Costa Rica! The Roadrunners are eager to experience differences in style of play in another part of the world, and how they match up against international competition!

Finally, players will have time to explore historic landmarks and volcanoes, zip-line, river raft, relax on the beach, and immerse themselves in the local culture!

Fund a Roadrunner 
The MSU Denver men’s soccer team has a kick-starter goal of $2000 on Giving Day. Our complete crowdfunding campaign goal is $10,000. This will cover less than 15% of the total trip cost, with the players working to fundraise in other ways to pay their portion of the adventure.

When you choose to support the MSU Denver men’s soccer team, the reach of your gift extends further than you can possibly imagine. Our student’s time in Costa Rica, and in turn your gift, will impact the lives of young people, children and women at social risk to drug trafficking, malnourishment, neglect, and abandonment. Your Roadrunners will participate in projects that address these social risks through: Bethesda House (a place for marginalized widows, children and families to learn sustainable solutions in the community like sewing and woodworking); and Hogar Sol Association.

Last year, the men's soccer team had over 200 hours of community engagement in the city of Denver. They’re ready to take their show on the road, and go make a mark in the world! Together, with your support, we can make a difference!

LET’S GO ROADRUNNERS!

Gifts made to the men's soccer crowdfunding page will count toward your Red and Blue Fund cumulative giving level.

Thank you!!!

Whatever language you speak (and these are all represented in the team), we say, "THANK YOU!!!" With your help, we achieved 277% of our kick-starter goal towards Costa Rica! Thank you!

Because of your donation, we're at 55% of our complete fundraising goal of $10,000. So, while MSU Denver Giving Day is over, there's still opportunity to support the cause. Email me if you'd like to further your Roadrunner support.

The players are individually responsible for over 60% of the trip cost. Your generous donations help make this trip a reality. The support of Roadrunners past and present, launch future opportunities that would otherwise remain beyond our reach. Together, we'll realize dreams previously thought of as only other people get to have.

We'll keep you updated along this exciting journey. Over one-third of the team speaks Spanish. It's going to come in handy in Costa Rica.

From all of us, 

THANK YOU!

Wow!

Wow! It's humbling and exciting to see such support and generosity towards your Men's Soccer Roadrunners!

We're well past our kick-starter goal and making strides towards our ultimate $10,000 fundraising goal. Thank you! 

We're eagerly anticipating Costa Rica with many preparations underway. I've heard so many positives from other groups having gone to exactly where we're going. I can't wait for our players to engage with the people and culture, serve in a foreign community, and have the extended preseason prep for a run at the RMAC Championship.

There's $500 in bonuses on Facebook and Instagram available to us. Supporters comment on the post as to why you chose to support MSU Denver Men's Soccer.There'll be a Facebook live recording tomorrow to announce the winners! 

Help us do 2 things in these final hours:                                                              

1. Continue to spread the word on your social media accounts.                          

2. Post on the Facebook and Instagram links above. Help us capture a bonus.

I'm wowed now from your support and generosity. I can't wait to share with you the wows these players will experience in Costa Rica. And, you're helping make it happen. Thank you!

GO ROADRUNNERS! 

GET ROWDY!
