Saturday, June 10, 2017 – It was an incredible experience for over 300 children that got to participate in the Malik Jackson Youth Football and Soccer Program on Saturday, June 10 at University Christian School in Jacksonville, Florida. Malik’s Gifts donated the money to cover all the expenses so that all the children could attend at no cost! Malik was able to bring in All-Pro and Jacksonville native, Cliff Avril, of the Seahawks to help out along with Jaguar teammates Calais Campbell, Sheldon Day, Carson Tinker, Jeremey Parnell, Jeremiah Poutasi, AJ Cann and Stefan Charles. The kids loved hanging out with the pro athletes and enjoyed the words of wisdom they shared, not to mention the guys know a little about Football.
Florida Elite Soccer Academy ran the soccer portion of the program and provided the kids with top tier coaching, energy and skill! A truly great soccer program in Jacksonville!
To win a championship, the team has to come together! Our community support and volunteers provided us the team to make this first year program a tremendous success. We could not have run the camp without GE Oil & Gas volunteer support! A special thank you goes out to RecoveryZone, CORA Physical Therapy, Fresh Thread Custom Apparel, Florida Capital Bank, Southeast Orthopedic specialists, All Sports High, Publix, SEP Performance, North Florida Medical Center, Burch Sports Performance, The ICEE Spot and APS Promotional Solutions.
Thanks to the Sports Den and James Coleman and Denny Thompson for doing their sports radio show live at the camp. Not to mention the Jaguars cheerleaders and the great mascot, Jaxton De Ville, for adding some sizzle to the camp with DJ Rollin RJ Webber.
