Screen_shot_2013-10-01_at_7.48.05_PMTwo high school students, who recently represented Belize in the U-15 CONCACAF tournament in the Cayman Islands held in the month of July of this year, received much needed assistance with the necessary gear for them to take their A-game to the field once again.  Randy Serrano, a student of Orange Walk Technical High School and Marlom Garcia of New Hope High School both received a pair of football shoes, socks, and shin guards.

The Play Big Foundation has already assisted these students with school supplies, but decided to present both athletes with the sporting gear to assist their preparations for the upcoming UNCAF tournament which will be held right here in Belize.

Fernando Sanchez is the Public Relations Manager for the foundation here in Belize and says that while the equipment costs money, for them, it simply has no value as long as it serves our young athletes in reaching their goal and full potential.

“The donation here is the football boots, the shield pads from the Play Big foundation to the players Randy Serrano and Marlon Garcia.  The Play Big Foundation took these two kids under us for our project and hence we have today presenting them with the boots courtesy or Raul Celiz and Giovanni Celiz, who live in Dallas as they have been selected again to represent our country on the under sixteen UNCAF tournament which will be held here in Belize.”

“Now, these are new items what more or less is the value of all these donations that you are given up?”

“Well, in terms of value we cannot put a price in terms of value but we have assisted them also with school supplies and now we come with the gears which they really need to play in the game it is for their game and development and for their dream and become international players.”

Those dreams can only be made possible through initiatives through organizations such as the Play Big Foundation, but there is no better person to say thank you than the recipients of such assistance. Undeniably, they are overwhelmed and plan to continue to do their best when on the field.

Randy Serrano, U-15 National Selection

“I am glad and excited and most of all of course very thankful for the support and we really need the equipment to play our games and just want to say thanks for the foundation.  We just wish to do our best and make our fans proud and of course people that help us and donate to us the gears that we need to play.”

Marlom Garcia, U-15 National Selection

“Feel happy and say thanks for the big support that Big Sanch has given to us and I want to tell them thanks and make sure to put my best in the field.”

Both Randy and Marlom will be representing the north as they have been selected to participate in the upcoming under 16 UNCAF tournament. The tournament is to be held in the month of November 2013.
