Roman says he’s been wanting to find a way to make a difference during this difficult time and hopes to also develop his soccer skills while bringing a bit of joy back to the community.

“I will be donating to local charities focused on feeding families in need and hospital funding such as AdvocateGiving.org and Feeding America,” Roman says. “I play for Chicago Sockers FC, but my dream is to play for Leeds United FC in the UK. My highest record in one attempt is 1363 with both legs. Please sponsor me to raise funds for the front line heroes! Thank you!”

Roman has created a GoFundMe page to raise money for his KICK UPS FOR COVID 19 USA campaign. He’s set a goal of raising $500 in the US plus $500 in the UK where he has family. Funds raised via Roman’s KICK UPS FOR COVID 19 UK page will go to an organization that supports the National Health Service in England.
