a day of

Soccer and Giving

On Sunday September 15th, 2019 in Garden City, NY soccer lovers of all ages and skill levels, from across Long Island, came together to raise money for Charity Ball, a non-profit that helps youth in need all over the world—AND help the U.S. break a record in the Guinness Book of World Records.


See how we did it below!

But first, learn why we did it.
All proceeds from the event went directly to Charity Ball.


Charity Ball

 

We believe they deserve better.

We have partnered with Charity Ball a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, which sources and distributes soccer balls to children in poverty-stricken communities around the world.

The gift of a new soccer ball can change the world for a kid. Millions of children living in poverty will never own a real ball. Crude substitutes made from trash and string are their only option. We believe they deserve better.

 

What to help? It’s not too late!

How we created The World’s Biggest Assist

Here’s a short example of what the video looks like

We broke the World Record for the World’s Longest Digital Pass.

We filmed a five second video of participants receiving a pass from their right, controlling the ball, and passing it off to their left.

We then edited it all together – into the World’s Longest Digital Pass!

The World’s Biggest Assist - at 3x normal speed!
