Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign 2021

Pictured above: Dash Academy 2004 and 2007

Dynamo | Dash Youth Soccer Club wrapped up its 10th annual Breast Cancer Awareness campaign last week led by the Dash Academy, brought to you by Hunter Family Orthodontics and SPB Consulting. The campaign resulted in $10,000 donated to In The Pink of Health / Memorial Hermann Foundation as well as contributing financial support to the Dash Academy.

Over $80K has been donated to local charities since the inception of the program in 2012, with more than 10,000 pink shirts sold and worn in the local community. This year alone, the club sold over 1,500 shirts across their local communities for players, family members and supporters to proudly wear in the months of September and October. Shirts were prominent in training sessions throughout the week as well as on game days in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“The commitment of these young athletes towards helping those struggling with ovarian and breast cancer is truly amazing,” said In the Pink of Health co-chair Debra Cooper. “Statistics show that many of these young women will be faced with a loved one battling these diseases in their lifetime and it is so encouraging to witness their compassion and support at such a young age. We are all in this together and we are so grateful for this continued partnership with the Houston Dynamo | Dash Youth Soccer Club.”

"It is such an honor and a privilege to be a part of the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign with the Dynamo | Dash Youth Soccer Club,” said Dr. Ross Hunter of Hunter Family Orthodontics. “The players do a fantastic job of raising awareness throughout the month of October in our community. My mother is fortunately a breast cancer survivor, so it brings me great joy to see all the pink shirts being worn by the athletes, knowing that some of the proceeds go towards finding a cure!”

"On behalf of the club, I would like to personally thank Dr. Ross Hunter and SPB Consulting for their support for this year's Breast Cancer Awareness campaign," said Simon Boddison, DDY Director of Soccer Operations. "It's a program that continually grows each year and has become a very important part of our club, reinforcing our core value of service."

carrousel_timeline_ppt-04-04

With the start of a new school year around the corner and the college commitment period having just passed, we want to congratulate the 50 Dynamo | Dash Youth soccer players in the Class of 2021 who have committed to colleges to continue their soccer careers.

Dynamo | Dash Youth has helped 514 players reach their collegiate dreams since 2006, including 40+ players in every graduating class since 2018. We’re also extremely excited that 100% of the Girls Academy Class of 2021 has committed to play at the next level.

Providing our members with collegiate opportunities is a core mission of our club, with resources made available through our College Center presented by Northwest Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. More than 2,000 Dynamo | Dash players are registered with College Fit Finder, a free online service we provided to help connect players to colleges and universities that best fit their situation. In addition, our staff is constantly providing seminars, team workshops, in-person education and 1-on-1 support to help players and families navigate the college soccer landscape.

Along with that support, players also have access to an extensive college recruiting network through our coaching staff and high visibility in front of college coaches across the country during a wide range of tournaments, showcases and league play opportunities.

We wish the Class of 2021 the best of luck as they head off to college this fall, and are excited to continue working with the Class of 2022 and beyond to place players in exceptional positions to advance their athletic careers. Six 2022 players have already made their college commitments, and we look forward to adding more over the course of the year!

"The club has a responsibility to enhance college recruitment opportunities through our resources and extensive networking connections," said Simon Boddison, Director of Soccer Operations.  "As part of our membership commitment, we will continue to provide a comprehensive platform that educates and informs all the players and families about the recruitment process to ensure the best opportunity for success. I along with our entire coaching staff look forward to celebrating all the college commitments this year."
