Students Attend Blazers vs. Mavericks

Last Thursday, students from Markham, Whitman, and Cesar Chavez Elementary Schools attended the Portland Trail Blazers game. The kids had a great time rooting the Blazers on to victory in a potential playoff match up against the Dallas Mavericks.

Thank you to Make It Better, Adidas Basketball, Neighborhood House and Impact NW for making Thursday night possible. The students had a great time, and it was a night they won’t be forgetting anytime soon.



Cheering on Rip City!


A little pre-game teamwork.


Smiles all around!

Volunteer for 50/50!!!

5050 Raffle Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers to attend the Timbers and Thorns FC games to sell 5050 raffle tickets. The Timbers and Thorns FC 5050 Raffles are huge fundraising opportunities for Active Children Portland … meaning more kids throughout Portland will benefit!!

Volunteers partner up to sell tickets to fans before the match until the end of half time and are then invited to watch the remainder of the game. It’s a fun and dynamic way to participate in the game day experience while helping out the kiddos.  All volunteers get a pass to the adidas employee store and can win other prizes.
