Stanley Dentistry Team Supports Community Project
Stanley Dentistry was thrilled to partner with the Town of Cary Police Department and the Carolina Railhawks for a Project Phoenix event at the Geneva Park Playground in Cary. More than 40 children ages 6-12 turned out for the Railhawks and Project Phoenix soccer clinic on June 14, 2011.
Three Railhawks team members and Community Outreach Director Caleb Norkus provided demonstrations in dribbling, passing, and juggling. Participants then put their new skills to use in several fast-paced, small-sided games. Participant Charlie Madera, age 11, says he loves playing soccer wherever he can, but it is often difficult to find a place to play. “I had a lot of fun playing today,” said Charlie. “Me and my friends are always looking for a place to play, so we came as soon as we saw the flyer.”
Project Phoenix is a program by Town of Cary Police Department that works to create healthier and safer neighborhoods in the Cary area. In addition to the soccer clinic, the program has brought in other organizations with the unified effort to bring the neighborhood residents closer together. “We started the program to work with underserved apartment communities in Cary,” said Greg Myers, a member of the Project Phoenix staff. “The basic goal is to help build community partnerships and to create opportunities to get the youth involved with programs that aren’t usually brought to these communities. Getting the Railhawks organization involved is a great example of this.”
Each child was presented with a free ticket to attend the Railhawks’ game against FC Tampa Bay on June 18th at Wake Med soccer Park, as well as free toothpaste and toothbrushes for the family.
The Carolina Railhawks are a professional soccer team based in Cary North Carolina and the team was founded in 2006.
