A little after 2:30 on October 24th and 25th busses from each of the seven Active Children Portland partner schools packed with eager, enthusiastic kids pulled up to the adidas Village. Members of Active Children Portland along with some of the Portland Timbers players and coaches cheerily welcomed the kids to one of our favorite fall events, Fall Frenzy!
Despite having foot surgery just a day before, Futty Danzo along with Timbers teammate Lovel Palmer made an appearance (Pictured above)
“The Frenzy is an opportunity for the students to come to the adidas Village and play on an amazing pitch, wear their uniforms and have fun. For many of our students it is their first time ever playing in a game and wearing a uniform.”-Ben Dudley Executive Director – Active Children Portland
Special thanks to KIND bars who helped us provide the kids with a healthy snack and water! And to top the day off, the kids were able to sit down with the Timbers for some Q & A time.
“We always bring Timbers players and coaches out to help make the day perfect. It is all about making the kids feel extra special!” – Ben Dudley Executive Director – Active Children Portland
On Thursday, we had the privilege of having John Ireland, the Timbers fitness coach, on hand to lead the students through a real pre-game warm-up. John did such a great job with the students and we are very thankful for his time.
Rest assured everyone who attended Fall Frenzy had a blast. Can’t wait to do it again next year! Thank you to everyone, especially adidas for hosting, who made this day perfect for the kids of Active Children Portland!
