INSPI(RED) Soccer Tourney to Benefit HIV/AIDS Education

On Saturday, teams of three will take to the West Turf fields for the INSPI(RED) Lose the Shoes 3v3 Soccer Tournament. All proceeds from the tournament, which is hosted by the Penn State men’s club soccer team and the Keep a Child Alive group, will go to Grassroot Soccer.

Grassroot Soccer is a charity that uses soccer to help fight HIV/AIDS in Africa. It aims to educate African youths about HIV/AIDS in the hope of preventing the spread of the disease. INSPI(RED) creates thousands of 3v3 barefoot tournaments nationwide to raise money for the charity.

To register for the tournament, you just need to gather two friends and sign up on the Grassroot Soccer website. Registration is $10 per person. At the event, there will be raffles, music, free food, and free condoms. So, head on over to the West Turf fields to help fight HIV/AIDS in Africa and have some fun playing soccer.
