AUTISM AWARENESS APRIL 2019
In April 2019, our Fountain City FC family rallied together in support of Autism Awareness Month. Players and coaches brought awareness to this amazing cause by wearing puzzle piece socks to our tournaments and games. In addition, the FC community raised $1,000 which was donated to KidsTLC and their Autism support program. This is a cause which is very dear to many of our coaches and families in the club. Fountain City FC believes in not only developing the talent of young soccer players, but also in helping the community around us. We are proud of our Fountain City FC family and the great impact we can have on our community!
