Cavalry FC Partners with the Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation to Support Lucy Tries Sports

April 23, 2019 - Canadian Premier League (CPL) - Cavalry FC News Release

Calgary, AB - As Cavalry FC prepares to kick off its inaugural Canadian Premier League season we are pleased to partner with the Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation to support Lucy Tries Sports, a book series created by veteran sports journalist Lisa Bowes and illustrated by James Hearne. The series inspires young readers to be active and try sports so they can lead healthier and happier lives.

The partnership will see a series of in school appearances across the Calgary region by Bowes, representatives from the Leg Up Foundation, and Cavalry FC players. There will be a book reading, an interactive engagement with the players, and each child will receive a signed copy of Lucy Tries Soccer.

Of the collaboration, Bowes says, ""I'm very excited to partner with a first class organization like Cavalry FC. Through our Lucy Tries Soccer school program, we'll be able to reinforce the importance of being active and what it means to persevere."

The collaborative partnership is reflective of Cavalry's commitment to the community.

Ian Allison, President & COO of Cavalry FC says, "The chance to collaborate with the Leg Up Foundation to support an initiative that promotes active and healthy living through reading was a natural fit. Through this partnership we hope to inspire children to commit to a life which includes active living and literacy."

With professional soccer returning to the Alberta foothills, the Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation and Cavalry FC are excited to bring professional soccer to a city renowned for its love of sport. The first presentation will take place April 25 at 1:00pm at St. Benedict School, 10340 19 St SW, Calgary, AB.
