Just over a year ago, while sitting at home in Richmond, VA, Garrick Dawson was browsing the web when an article caught his attention. The article was titled, “World’s First Transit Station Soccer Field”. He then shared the story on Facebook, not knowing anything about the non-profit organization, Soccer in the Streets. That was until six months ago when he called the Director of Programs, Lauren Glancy, to get a better understanding of what Soccer in the Streets was all about. A week later, he was packing a U-haul in Richmond to move to Atlanta and start his new position with Soccer in the Streets as the School Program Manager. Coincidence? Maybe. Some would call it fate.
