Oregon: Portland Barefoot 3 x 3 HIV Awareness Tournament to Draw Hundreds to Northeast Portland

May 21, 2013

Oregon's Northeast United Soccer Club and The Portland Barefoot are working together to present the 2013 Portland Barefoot 3 x 3 Tournament & World Soccer Festival June 9 at Concordia University. The project started with Dr. Gordon Johnson, a Beaumont-Wilshire neighborhood physician. Johnson was at a world HIV conference when he first learned about the Grassroots Soccer program to raise HIV awareness in Africa. He organized the first Portland tournament four years ago and raised $2,500 with 60 players. This year, with 450 players and an estimated 1,000 spectators, Johnson hopes to raise $20,000. The volunteer-run soccer tournament aims to bring attention to HIV awareness worldwide.
