Homestead resident and former South Dade High school football star Noah Wilbanks believed so strongly in the FCA’s core values that he quit his job as a high school teacher and coach and became a full time staff member at the FCA. For the last ten years, he has served as the local Area Representative, running football camps, working with the Coaches Ministry and helping schools form student led, student initiated huddles. He is excited to be planning this fundraiser and hopes it becomes an annual event that brings visibility to the organization and encourages community support for local school programs. "Our goal is to meet people where they are at, to serve and help them grow their faith," states Wilbanks.
The FCA is the largest Christian sports organization in America and has served communities since 1954 by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference. The FCA supports male and female student athletes of all sports, as well as their coaches. The local FCA chapter extends from Florida City to Bird Road and includes South Dade Senior, Southridge Senior, Palmetto and Killian High Schools.
