This summer EFC will be hosting the first annual "Play Soccer to Defeat ALS" summer camp. The camp will begin the end of July and finish at the start of August, which is ALS awareness month. EFC’s goal is to raise money for The Kostiuk Family Foundation and also spread awareness of this disease.
The Kostiuk Family Foundation was founded by Gene Kostiuk; who was diagnosed with ALS in May of 2014. The Kostiuk Family Foundation was established to help families and individuals affected by ALS, as well as continue the awareness and research of ALS.
Gene was an avid tennis player in his years after retiring as a successful business man from UPS. He lived a healthy lifestyle and even took up dance lessons once he left the tennis courts. This camp will help to honor Gene’s athleticism and GOAL of spreading awareness about this disease and bring us one step closer to finding a cure.
