Red Cross plays the Global Peace Games

infotableThe American Red Cross of Massachusetts kicked off some cross-cultural understanding with the Global Peace Games last weekend.

The event, organized by Soccer Without Borders, engaged under-served youth with activities that build mutual respect and a sense of belonging.

It took place at the Salesian Boys and Girls Club in East Boston, and broke groups up by age and rotated them on and off the field – or gym floor, as it were. When kids weren’t playing soccer, they were participating in discussions and arts and crafts surrounding the themes.

The Red Cross provided first aid to those who suffered bumps and bruises during the game, and handed out information on preparedness, family links and healthy snacks.
