Scholarship award launched to recognize outstanding contribution to changing the lives of the youth on the Kick4Life program in Lesotho

NEW YORK CITY, NY — At the annual Kick4Life Gala held at Angel Orensanz in New York City on Thursday November 2, 2023, Kick4Life will proudly launch the  Michael and Laura Goodall Gala Scholarship Award. This exciting award will provide a full-ride student-athlete scholarship to a deserving young individual from the Kick4Life program in Lesotho each year, enabling them to pursue their educational dreams in the USA.

The scholarship award is recognized in the name of Michael and Laura Goodall, who have made indispensable contributions to significantly drive the growth of the annual Gala event in New York City.

The Goodalls have mentored and supported the educational journey of Kick4Life scholar Senate Letise, Lesotho’s first ever female student-athlete in the USA and Canada. Furthermore, having been a driving force behind the continued success of the Kick4LIfe NYC Gala, this award will enable Mike and Laura to broaden their impact.

Laura Goodall says: "We believe in the transformative power of education. Our journey with Senate and Kick4Life has opened our eyes to the immense potential within these young individuals. We envision the scholarship award as a platform that will inspire more people to invest in the future of these impressive young individuals. We're incredibly excited about the possibilities this initiative will unlock for the participants of Kick4Life."

Kick4Life's Co-founder Pete Fleming also remarks, "The establishment of the Michael and Laura Goodall Gala Scholarship Award is made possible by their incredible commitment each year to the NYC Gala event and to their wider impact in transforming the lives of the youth on the Kick4Life program. Their dedication has carved out a pathway to a brighter future for the youth of Lesotho." 

Fleming added: "We have now been able to support ten young people from Lesotho to scholarships in North America, and that is thanks to many people who have generously donated and supported our work over the years in various ways. We would like to acknowledge the incredible support of everyone in the Kick4Life community for making this genuinely life-changing impact possible."

The Kick4Life NYC Gala will take place at the stunning Angel Orensanz in Manhattan on Thursday November 2, 2023. For more information and to purchase tables please email adam@kick4life.org or visit: https://kick4lifegala.givesmart.com/
