NYIT Athletics Presents Kick, Score, Save for Save the Children’s Education Programs in Haiti

Old Westbury, N.Y. (April 29, 2011) – Long Islanders are invited to see a collegiate women’s soccer tournament, attend soccer clinics and beat-the-pro competitions, as well as a men’s soccer game as part of the “Kick, Score, Save” soccer event on Saturday, April 30, on NYIT's Old Westbury campus. The event will benefit Save the Children’s work to provide a quality education and a better future for Haitian children.

The event will also include a shootout contest, face painting and other family activities, along with a men’s soccer game featuring the NYIT Bears and the NJIT Highlanders. Raffles, food vendors, and other activities will support Save the Children’s education programs in Haiti, which includes early childhood development, the construction of schools built to withstand earthquakes and hurricanes, activities to improve reading and writing skills, and teacher training. The event, which organizers plan to make an annual tradition, is sponsored by NYIT Department of Athletics and Recreation in partnership with Save the Children Long Island Council.
