This weekend Forever Strong honored and raised money for the victims and survivors of the Kalamazoo Mass Tragedy.

 This weekend had an incredible opportunity to come out and support the charity "Forever Strong'. If you don't know about the charity, their mission statement explains their purpose perfectly...

"The Purpose of the Forever Strong Memorial Foundation is to strengthen our communities as we honor the victims and survivors of mass tragedies. While we work to create a memorial, consisting of several unique sections, that will stand as a place to gather, reflect, draw strength, celebrate life, grow and inspire one another to reach our full potential, we prove again that our communities will stand together and remain committed to fostering hope for a better tomorrow."

The weekend was filled with fun!


The party kicked off at 6:00 pm at Airway Lanes. There was free bowling, free soda, and a free taco bar for anyone to enjoy. On top of that, you could take part in a silent auction, purchase 'Forever Strong' gear (shirts, hoodies, soccer balls, etc.), and donate cash if you wanted too.

Saturday and Sunday

Over the weekend over 32 teams showed up a soccer tournament at River Oaks Park in Galesburg to enjoy 48 games, lots of smiles and a ton of fun!

Thank you to everyone who came out to support this amazing organization!
