In October of 2014, Lisa, one of our founding coaches suffered extensive burns to her body due to a gas explosion that had occurred in her apartment. Over the past year and a half, she has endured countless surgeries and therapy sessions. Throughout her journey, the Phoenix Society for burn survivors has played a big part in her recovery, providing her with the emotional support she needed.

That support has inspired Lisa to become an  active volunteer for the Phoenix Society and  to give back to the organization that has given her so much. Lisa and her boyfriend, Chris, decided to start Strive Soccer Camp benefiting the Phoenix Society. They both grew up with a passion for soccer and are excited to use their experience to give back to Phoenix Society and to our community!
