Target USA CUP isn’t all just about soccer. In a heart-warming display of compassion and determination, Drew Rohner, Senior at Sycamore High School and player for Cincinnati United, decided to take action and make a positive impact on the Ukrainian victims of the Russian invasion.
During the 2023 edition of Target USA CUP, Drew’s team played against FC Minaj, a youth soccer club from a suburb of Uzhhorod, Ukraine. Attending the game were several severely wounded Ukrainian soldiers who happened to be in Minnesota to receive prosthetics.
The Protez Foundation (protez – a Ukrainian word meaning prosthesis in English) is a Nonprofit Organization that provides care for Ukrainians who have lost limbs and need prosthetics. The goal of their work is to help children, civilians, and soldiers who have lost limbs as a result of the war and gift them high quality prosthetics free of charge.
Drew’s story and compassion to be a voice for this cause is truly inspiring. If you are interested in Drew’s Fundraiser and the Protez Foundation, explore the links below!
