The Iowa Rush u12 Ankeny United Girls recently completed a team fundraiser/service project to benefit the Animal Rescue League (ARL) of Iowa. The girls wanted to support the ARL, team member Allison Robinson said "because I love animals and the ARL was in need of supplies." As a part of the project, the girls collected supplies from their homes, friends and neighbors or collected donations to purchase items for the animal shelter.
The team really enjoyed their experience and learned some valuable lessons along the way. Team member Mikayla Sash said, "it is better to give than to take, it was better to help the animals than to just save all of our money for ourselves." Team member Kate Hoogensen even issued a challenge to other Iowa Rush players and teams, "I thought it was fun to do that fundraiser and I challenge other people and teams to do something for an organization that is there for a good cause!"
Special thanks to the Iowa Rush u12 Ankeny United and head coach Richard Harris for such a positive representation of the Iowa Rush in our community!
