CARSON, Calif. -- You’ll have a chance to bid on signed LA Galaxy cleats thanks to the LA Galaxy Foundation.
The Galaxy’s charitable organization and midfielder Sebastian Lletget are teaming up to allow you to bid for cleats signed by LA Galaxy players, with all proceeds going to Power Soccer.
Fans will be able to bid on cleats signed by Lletget, David Bingham, Ashley Cole, Dave Romney, Daniel Steres, Ola Kamara, Giovani dos Santos, Servando Carrasco, Jorgen Skjelvik, and Mike Ciani.
Power Soccer is the first competitive team sport designed and developed specifically for power wheelchair users. These participants include persons with quadriplegia, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, head trauma, stroke, spinal cord injury and other disabilities.
Power Soccer combines the skill of the wheelchair user with the speed and power of the chair itself, to participate in an extremely challenging game similar to soccer. The game is played in a gymnasium on a regulation basketball court. Two teams of four power wheelchair users attack, defend, and spin-kick a 13-inch soccer ball in an attempt to score goals.
The Galaxy will honor the life of Power Soccer player, Kyle Ornelas, who passed away after battling Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, during their August 14 match against Colorado Rapids.
