United Reads!

One of the reasons why we love working with DC United is their connection to the community. Fans come to RFK Stadium from all over Washington DC to cheer on United, and DC United travels all over Washington DC to promote literacy and healthy lifestyles for children.

On Tuesday we accompanied DC United players Adam Cristman and Kurt Morsink to Tubman Elementary School in Northwest DC. They came to speak to the students about how they achieved their goals through staying active, and how reading has enriched their lives. United Reads challenges kids to read and be active every day, and to record their success. Winning students are awarded a bag full of DC United swag by DC United players themselves, while everyonen else gets two free books! Congratulations to all the winners!
