As many of you already know, we have lost one of the great ones. We learned over the weekend of the sudden and untimely death on Feb. 16, 2018 of Rainbow co-founder Kip Ward. Many have been leaving messages of support, remembrance and condolence on our Rainbow FB page along with the FB pages of Kip and his wife, Donna Tamayo-Ward. Thank you for doing so as this means a great deal to his wife, brother and the rest of his family.
We wanted to let you know that Rainbow Soccer will host an informal gathering on Saturday, February 24th at 4pm at the Rainbow Fields for those who want to celebrate Kip's life. Bring your lawn chairs, soccer balls, flat shoes (no cleats) and a beverage. Kip's widow and stepdaughter will be joining us as they look forward to meeting his Chapel Hill friends and learning more about his life and legacy here. Wear your favorite Rainbow T-shirt and bring any pictures or stories you would like to share.
We look forward to seeing you at the fields.
Yours in soccer,
Mike, Drew & Karen
