Walking For Kelvin

Westport Soccer AssociationKelvin Mutambo is well known to the Westport soccer community.  The former Zambia national team player spent years as a beloved Westport Soccer Association youth coach. He’s faced medical problems recently, and now the town is giving something back to him.

This Friday, the WSA is sponsoring a Walk-a-Thon at Wakeman Field (7 to 8:30 p.m.).  Interested players and their families are collecting donations before the event — either a flat amount, or an amount per lap expected to walk.  Funds should be collected beforehand, and handed in at the event.

It’s a hectic time of year.  Let’s hope on Friday, Westport is not too busy to help a man who has spent years helping our kids.

(Tax-deductible checks should be made out to “WSA,” with “Walk for Kelvin” in the subject line. Click here and scroll down under “Headlines” to print out the pledge sheet.)
