OCS Soccer Program

On October 23rd, I will be running a 10K here in Santiago, Dominican Republic.  I will be running to raise support for the soccer program at Oasis Christian School.  We are currently about $1,000 short to purchase uniforms for this season and we also have about 30 players who are unable to play due to finances.

Why does Oasis Christian School matter to our family and/or Hope House?

1 - OCS is the school that our children attend.  They have been so incredibly amazing in supporting our kiddos in their education.  The school goes above and beyond for its students and we are incredible blessed by them.

2 - OCS is where our Hope House kids will be attending.  We have a partnership with them and they have expressed how important it is to them that their school be involved in shaping the future of the children in our care.

3 - Soccer played a huge role in both Mike and I's lives.  Both of our older kids have chosen to play soccer this year and we want every kid that has a desire to play to have the same opportunities as our kids.

4 - Oasis Christian School is an outreach from our home church here, Iglesia Cristiana Oasis.  Our Church started the school as a way to minister to families in our community and surrounding communities to offer an affordable, private, Christian education.

My goal is to raise $1000.00 to pay for the uniforms.  If we are able to raise over the $1000, the excess money will be used as scholarship for students that would like to participate but are unable to due to financial hardship.
