PRESS RELEASE – The Free Kick Foundation founded by Aaron King, will be used as the vehicle to provide an alternate path for kids born into economically depressed communities throughout the Caribbean.
Aaron King explained “I remember growing up in the CDC area in Castries, St. Lucia and all we had was sports, football in particular. We rarely had the time to get into trouble because all we did was play football. So, I wanted to start a project that will reach out to the younger generation of these and similar communities, and provide various types of support, while using football as the foundation”
When asked how he plans to accomplish such a mission, he explained further by saying “We plan to make a calculated investment in each candidate in our program. We provide a platform for success from our football tournaments to our educational classes. We track their grades through secondary (High) school, and after high school we help them find jobs, university scholarships, etc.”
He continued “Success for us will be if we can produce model citizens, who the generation after can look up to and emulate.”
