MONTREAL – As part of the community relations department’s 25 for 25 program, the Montreal Impact announced on Wednesday that All the Way with the Impact, its successful stay-in-school program designed to promote the importance of persevering in school, is returning for a 13th consecutive year, with 11 participating school boards.
As part of the first visit in 2018, which also integrates the community relations department’s 25 for 25 program, goalkeepers Evan Bush and James Pantemis met students at Harmony Elementary School, from the New Frontiers School Board, in Châteauguay.
The Impact players will visit several schools until May 31, to discuss with children the importance of staying in school and striving for excellence. Emphasis will be put on the values of initiative-taking, respect, discipline and cooperation in achieving their goals.
Several players, including Jason Beaulieu, Chris Duvall, Raheem Edwards, Anthony Jackson-Hamel, Ken Krolicki, Daniel Lovitz, Michael Petrasso, Samuel Piette and Saphir Taïder will be involved in the program this year.
