The first American football team in Kaunas (the second American football team in Lithuania) Kaunas Dukes is asking for your financial assistance to help the team gather enough money in order to purchase training equipment. Established in 2016, Kaunas Dukes is a very young and ambitious team that wants to spread the word about American football in Lithuania and compete with teams from other countries. Currently the team has about 20 active members. New members join the team every few weeks, as the team is still young.
As of now, the team has collected enough money from active team members to buy footballs, field equipment and practice jerseys needed for the trainings. So far, the team does not play tackle football as it lacks shoulder pads, helmets and other necessary safety equipment. As we continue gathering funds, participating in trainings and making American football more popular in Lithuania, we find ourselves in a tough spot with our financial situation regarding the safety equipment.
We ask you to help us financially by donating money to the team in order for us to purchase the essential equipment we are lacking in order to start training tackle football and competing with other teams. Help us make American football popular in Lithuania.
Amongst other benefits your support will allow us to encourage community gatherings in Kaunas to watch tournaments and games, as well as, will raise public awareness about the need of physical activity in the local community. We believe that your support will allow us to build a foundation which will help us furtherly spread ideas of healthy lifestyle in the community by organizing open flag football events for small children in order to ensure their physical activity.However, for now all proceeds will only go for the necessary equipment (shoulder pads and helmets).
