Kick for Nick program

Kick for Nick program, is a non-profit organization that distributes soccer balls across the country and the world. Kick for Nick was founded by Bill and Shalini Madaras of Wilton, CT in honor of their son Nick, who was killed defending our country as a soldier in the U.S. Army. 

Prior to his death, Nick brought home with him hundreds of photos of happy, smiling children. Realizing the children didn’t have much to play with, he proposed the idea of bringing soccer balls back with him for the second part of his tour. Since 2006, Kick for Nick has distributed more than 45,000 soccer balls globally. 

Thank you to Chandra Johnson-Greene, PR/Marketing Manager of www.HooplaHa.com for sharing this.
