June's Awesome Ottawa award goes to Aaron Thornell and DropIn Sports to support a soccer tournament that will welcome new Canadians to the Ottawa community.
The tournament, Community Kicks, will be held at Brewer Park on Sunday, June 24, and welcome players of all skill levels and abilities. It will also feature a DJ, a World Cup viewing area, and spirit prizes that place an emphasis on sportsmanship and teamwork.
The event, now in its second year, is organized by a group of volunteers under the banner of DropIn Sports, a community-based organization that seeks to get individuals of all skill, experience, and ability levels involved in recreational activities.
