After spending just a few days helping Basketball As A Mission in July 2015, Bridget was immediately connected with the PE teachers at the Fe & Alegria K-12 School. She asked what she could do to continue to help their community and Fernando Peguero said that he would love to start a Futbol program — just weeks later, F.C. Conexión and our nonprofit organization Puente de Conexión were born.

Quote from Head Coach, Fernando Peguero, when asked “How did it go?”
“Nos fue bien. Fueron más niños de lo que teníamos en la lista y decidimos dejarlo porque es algo injusto sacarlo si ellos tienen el deseo de participar e aprender.” It went well. More kids came than we had on the [sign-up] list and we decided to let it go because it’s just not right to make them leave if they have the desire to participate and learn.
