World Cup Ball Giveaway to Honor PEPFAR 10th Anniversary
In celebration of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) 10-year anniversary, member countries are invited to symbolically kick a 2010 Official World Cup Match Ball into a portable goal for an AIDS-free generation at their embassy from June 25 to 26, according to a Goree Challenge statement. A participant will be chosen at random to receive the ball; the winner will be announced Tuesday, June 26, in Washington, DC. Two U.S. locations are participating in the initiative: Connecticut Avenue Days Inn in DC, and Upper 90 Soccer + Sport in Brooklyn, New York. In addition, in honor of the anniversary, PEPFAR’s Global AIDS Coordinator Ambassador Eric Goosby will talk Monday, June 25, at the Brookings Institute in DC.
