Through its Goals4Goals fundraiser, the St. Francis High girls soccer team last month donated four sets of portable goals to Landels Elementary School’s afterschool program for underprivileged girls and a check for ,540.25 (more than the total of the big check presented) to fund pedometers, journals and other equipment to keep the girls on track and recording their athletic progress. The St. Francis players received donations for each goal they scored this season. Members of St. Francis’ girls soccer and lacrosse teams attended the donation event at Landels in Mountain View. The girls gave the money to Marlene Bjornsrud, founder of the Bay Area Women’s Sports Initiative, which will purchase the items for the afterschool program. Other attendees included Mountain View Vice Mayor Chris Clark – who thanked the players for starting Goals4Goals and stressed the significance of teens helping the community – Landels Principal Carmen Mizell and St. Francis Principal Patricia Tennant. The Goals4Goals program will continue, said senior goalie Jacq Walker-Caginia (top row, third from left), with each senior class choosing the beneficiary prior to the season and presenting their gifts at the end of it.Courtesy of Jacq Walker-Caginia Members of the St. Francis High girls soccer team recently donated goals and money to Landels Elementary School in Mountain View.
