February 7th, 2013

Following December’s tragic events at Newtown, Conn., various organizations have stepped up to help members of Sandy Hook Elementary School. Quinnipiac University have taken drastic steps to address this in their own special way.

Dave Clarke, head women’s soccer coach for Quinnipiac University, has spearheaded a #26 shirt auction to raise funds for a scholarship for those affected in the local community. The response has been tremendous, as over 100 clubs and national teams have promised to donate #26 shirts to this admirable cause.

Teams such as Bayern Munich, AS Roma and England have joined the effort, while more are expected following this week’s round of international friendlies, World Cup qualifiers or African Cup of Nations matches. Tentative plans are to host the auction in March or April.
