About Hope Soccer Festival
Hope Soccer Festival partnered with Commonwealth Catholic Charities, the largest resettlement agency in southwest Virginia, to further expand awareness and support for refugees who have come to the United States where they are building a stable future. CCC ensures that refugee families have the tools and support that they need to succeed in our communities, through case management, health and language support, and education and employment services. Learn more about CCC’s Refugee Resettlement program.
Landon Moore created the Ndarugiriye Mariam Scholarship Fund and the Hope Soccer Festival to support the educational needs of refugee children in the Roanoke Valley. Since 2012, hundreds have participated in this beloved festival and have raised thousands of dollars to enrich the lives of dozens of refugee children and families.
Anyone can play!
Players will compete in their age bracket against other teams in 20-30 minute games. Proceeds from the event go to support our refugee friends and neighbors.
"I was very incredibly grateful for the opportunity to receive the Ndarugiriye Mariam Scholarship. I wanted to say thank you for the gift of education, empowering me to reach for the stars and bringing the lights to the path of my dreams."
