From United for D.C.'s Executive Director, Sara Peterson:
On Thursday, September 11, six members of D.C. United assisted 30 youth from United for D.C.'s United Soccer Club in the "Shop with a Player" experience at Dick's Sporting Goods. Marc Burch, Quavas Kirk, Bryan Namoff, Clyde Simms, Zack Wells and Mike Zaher accompanied a group of five kids on a $100 shopping spree throughout the sporting goods store in Bailey's Crossroads.
The kids and players enjoyed a Papa John's pizza party (because its never good to shop on an empty stomach!) and then made their way through the maze of merchandise that Dick's has to offer. A majority of the kids left with cleats, shin guards and soccer balls and other popular purchases included skateboards, hool-a-hoops and Crocs!
