While there wasn’t a registration fee, donations were taken to benefit the Children’s Advocacy Center.
St. Mary’s freshman Milan Bobek said he organized the event as a school project.
“It was a St. Mary’s religion project, I had to choose something, or match one of my interests with a need in the community,” Bobek said. “I thought I would get a couple kids, and we got a lot more.”
All of the kids took home a soccer ball at the end of the day. Bobek said he plans on continuing the event through his high school years.
