A few weeks before the start of the new school year, the Rae Strong Foundation teamed up with Players Sport & Social Group once again to throw the ultimate beach party. On the gorgeous Chicago day at North Avenue Beach 260 teams battled it out in volleyball and bags, while some of the other ~1300 people enjoy live music, food, and drinks. It was a great day for all and Rae Strong. We raised even more than $3500 raised from Beach Slap through T-Shirts and donations.
Sporting some of the new Rae Strong apparel (soon to come to a revamped Rae Strong online store) was Foundation co-founder and beach volleyball veteran Dan Friend. Dan and his partner Mark Jones made it all the way to the finals representing Rae Strong well!
Thank you to everyone that came out to enjoy a great day at the beach and support Rae Strong’s mission of providing assistance to Preemie families! That’s it for summer events for us, we now move into the school year where we are set to have another batch of Playing For Preemies games at Lewis, as well as other soon-to-be announced exciting news.
