Charles Bello, a long-time dedicated coach and volunteer of the BSC was involved in a serious cycling accident in August. Charles’ road to recovery will be long and difficult. While Charles will be more than up for the challenge, his friends, family, players and referees gathered on Sat, Oct. 5th for a Soccer Game to keep his spirit and enthusiasm for soccer strong to help aid in his recovery!
The group gathered to continue the example Charles has set over the many years that he has coached. In addition to the thousands of hours he has personally committed to coaching for the BSC, Charles has personally paid to support families and players who have needed assistance paying for their kids’ registration fees – a cause very close to Charles’ heart. To continue with this cause, all proceeds from the game were donated in his name to the Burlington Soccer Club Fee Assistance fund.
With over 120 player participants and over 200 people in attendance, the event raised more than $5,200! Thank you to all of the players, volunteers, organizers, fans, and supporters that attended the Charles Bello Benefit Soccer Game!
