On September 29, 2012, thousands of soccer enthusiasts will make a nationwide attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most soccer balls ever dribbled by a group at one time. Synchronized across four time zones in ten minutes of simultaneous dribbling, The Great America SCORES Soccer Dribble aims to connect over 3,000 supporters to break the current record (2,068 dribblers) in Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New York, Portland, San Francisco, St Louis and Seattle.
More than a world record, The Great America SCORES Soccer Dribble is a mission to bring the world's most popular sport into under-resourced elementary schools. Soccer communities across the country are uniting to raise money and awareness for America SCORES, an afterschool program that uses soccer to inspire health and literacy among urban youth. National support from Pepsi, Soccer.com, and SCORCH Agency enables America SCORES to commit all proceeds directly to serving students in need.
"Everyone affiliated with America SCORES, from our organization's leadership to the children we serve, is excited to join together in this fun way to actively support our ongoing mission to inspire at-risk, urban youth to lead healthy lives," said Kate Carpenter, America SCORES Milwaukee Executive Director.
With help from longtime partners The American Society of Composers Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and adidas America, America SCORES has released a theme song by award-winning ASCAP songwriter/producer Alonzo "Zo" Lee (Ludacris, Britney Spears), Tendai, Trak Starz/Starz Angels, Psalm One (Rhymesayers Entertainment), Flo (Trak Starz Records) and students from America SCORES; and will launch a series of endorsement videos featuring a cast of professional athletes including Kenny Cooper (New York Red Bulls), Conor Casey (Colorado Rapids), Darlington Nagbe (Portland Timbers), Patrik Nyarko (Chicago Fire), Jeff Parke and Patrick Ianni (Seattle Sounders). Women's US National team players Heather O'Reilly, Rebecca Sauerbrunn, & Leslie Osborne are also showing support.
