what parents are saying…

"I didn't know dreams could hurt this much! But, I did it, my dream came true And then for the rest of the night all we heard from him was that his dream came true!"

− Christiano after his first KPFK soccer team practice as described by his Mom!

"When Max joined the Fighting Falcons soccer team, he found friends and team mates who cared about him on and off the field."

− Patricia, Mom of Max, a KPFK player on both soccer and flag football teams

"KPFK is a great organization. They have not only helped my son feel like an athlete, but also helped me conquer a fear of allowing my son to play sports, while dealing with his chronic Sickle Cell disease. "

− Kevyn, mother of Sa'Preeme, a KPFK player on both flag football and basketball
