Maryland men’s soccer and the VOYCENOW Foundation will share the funds raised by their 10k for $10k event with four Maryland-based charitable organizations, the two announced Tuesday.

The grand total of $13,000 will be sent to the Prince George’s County Boys and Girls Club, the Dream BIG Foundation, and the Baltimore and Washington D.C. chapters of the Boys and Girls Club of America.

The Terps will also personally donate 40 new soccer balls to each organization.

“To be able to partner with VOYCENOW, led by my former players Zack Steffen and Alex Crognale, was incredible and I am so proud of what they continue to do,” Maryland head coach Sasho Cirovski said in a press release from the team.

Founded last year by former men’s soccer players Zach Steffen and Alex Crognale, the VOYCENOW Foundation hopes “To unite athletes and their fans through advocacy and action to support and celebrate diversity in communities across the world,” according to their mission statement. The organization hosts community fundraisers and mentorship programs with the help of its growing roster of over 100 professional athletes.

“Working with Sash and Maryland has helped us do just that in both the Baltimore and Washington D.C. communities,” Steffen, now playing with Manchester City FC, said in the release. “It was awesome to connect with the current group of guys on the team and inspiring to see how passionate they are about speaking out and using their platforms to make a difference.”
