Jean Claude Munyezamu, 2018 Fast Pitch participant and Executive Director of Soccer Without Boundaries, had been wondering how his organization was going to cover the cost of liability insurance this year and was past due in remitting payment. Then, at the 2018 Fast Pitch Finals, Jean Claude was selected by Fast Pitch coaches as the winner of the Coaches’ Choice award for his incredible dedication and growth throughout the program. The award, sponsored by Keyera, came with a $5,000 cash prize for Soccer Without Boundaries.
Thanks to Keyera, the Fast Pitch program and coaches, they are now insured. Any leftover funds will support their After School Program in the Glenbrook Community.
Jean Claude says, “I truly enjoyed working with all of you to develop a succinct story for promoting our vision. I’m sure it will make me more effective as I raise funds going forward and have found myself using it regularly. You did a fabulous job of convincing me that I can still memorize large passages! Thanks for encouragement and guidance. I value your program and how you help not-for-profit organizations and charities to sharpen their “axes” to be more effective in communicating their visions. Again, thank you for a wonderful experience and opening the door to potential collaborations with other organizations you connected us with.”
Congratulations Jean Claude for all of your hard work, and thank you Keyera for supporting this great award.
