CrossTraining will begin taking applications for the 2012 season’s Timothy Project on Tuesday, May 1. The application process has been simplified from last season. Applicants will need to complete an online submission form which will be reviewed by CrossTraining Team members. Projects that meet with organizational values and criteria receive priority in consideration for either financial sponsorship, donated equipment, or promotion through the CrossTraining network.
The Timothy Project is CrossTraining’s way of giving back – up to ten percent of annual donations go toward projects and individuals using soccer to help their communities around the world. Now in its’ third season, the Timothy Project is part of CrossTraining’s fiscal agreement with START Ministries. START, the fiscal sponsor of CrossTraining, mobilizes people for short-term mission projects locally and around the world. In the first year, CrossTraining tested out the program, sponsoring Greg Dalby (a member of the Charlotte Eagles). In the second year, CrossTraining donated equipment to an orphanage in Africa, supplied soccer balls for a short-term trip to Guatemala, and provided a financial sponsorship for a soccer league operating in Turkey.
