Force Foundation Day Grows in Second Year

CLICK HERE TO DONATE and make sure you are in attendance for Force Foundation Day!

This will be the second year for the Force Foundation Day at Olympic Sports Center.  The first year, the event was an extension of the Force Legends game held two years ago featuring original members of the Olympic Force and the current rostered players.  For last year's FFD, an Army vs Navy exhibition game was put together.  This year, the FFD is growing again, and we're pulling out all the stops to help some very special organizations.

The Force Foundation was created to help the local community in any way it could.  For the youth, it was put together to try and help raise money for youth sports and clubs that might be struggling or to provide an opportunity for some kids to play that just couldn't afford it.  However, the Force Foundation is there to help all of our community needs inside and outside of sports.  With that in mind, and to really showcase the military presence in our community, this year's Force Foundation Day will go to benefit two main groups.  The first being the Wounded Warrior Project and the second being some of our local Family Readiness Groups based in Kitsap County.

The event day will still showcase the Force Legends Game at the end of the day and it will still have the Army vs Navy game the same as last year, however, this year there will be even more to do and experience.  There will be a third game, an Olympic Force WOMEN'S Game!  This will be the first time you can see the Force women play indoor soccer.  In between games, we will have live music, with local artists.  There will be local vendors and sponsors on hand with plenty of prizes to give away.  Great food and drink.  Silver City Brewery is already on board and we will, as always, be working with our friends at Marine View Beverage and Pepsi as well.  The new drink created by the Olympic Force Owner and the GM, the Frozen Force Lemonade will be a huge hit for the kids and of course the bounce houses will be set up for the little ones that need to thrash around for a bit.

All this sounds like a pretty good day. But we haven't even touched on it as we will be holding the first ever Force Foundation Cross Country 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run in the morning before we even get started indoors!!!  A fun event that will feature many different surfaces to run on throughout Pendergast Park and the surrounding areas, we are really excited to attract a whole new group of athletes to our facility, all in the name of supporting the military in need.

Why the Family Readiness Groups?  Simple, they are THE main support groups for the sailors, their families, friends and relatives while they serve.  Families get uprooted and shipped all over the world in the name of serving our great country and these groups are there to welcome them all.  They provide support while sailors are home or away and work to create a strong unit for these families in times of need and difficulty.  We feel strongly that these groups are an under valued and highly important part of the life of our sailors and their families and we want to help them out.
