Last Saturday, Chivas USA hosted 10-year-old soccer player Adrian Grajeda. The young Palm Springs, Calif., native is not your typical youth soccer player. Back in October 2013, Grajeda was hit by a car that invaded the field of play while he and his fellow classmates played soccer during the recess break. Unfortunately, the young soccer fan lost part of his right leg. Despite the physical challenges, Grajeda continues playing soccer and hopes to one day become a professional soccer player.

Chivas USA’s Head Coach Wilmer Cabrera was the first to welcome young Adrian and his family before last Saturday’s match up against Seattle Sounders FC at the StubHub Center. Coach Cabrera gave the entire Grajeda family a tour of the Chivas USA locker room, treatment and equipment centers. Additionally, Grajeda was given Chivas USA gear and was the club’s VIP for the day.

Following the tour, Grajeda joined the team on the field for warm ups, and just before the start of the game, the youngster was in charge of kicking off the game, participating in the ceremonial first kick alongside forward Erick “Cubo” Torres. Take a look at a clip:

El pasado sábado, Chivas USA recibió al futbolista de diez años, Adrian Grajeda. El joven oriundo de Palm Springs, Calif. no es el típico joven futbolista. El pasado mes de Octubre del 2013, un vehículo invadió la cancha donde Grajeda y sus compañeros se encontraban jugando fútbol durante el descanso escolar impactando a Grajeda. Desafortunadamente, el joven aficionado al fútbol perdió parte de su pierna derecha. A pesar de los desafíos físicos, Grajeda continúa jugando a fútbol y espera algún día ser futbolista profesional.

El Director Técnico de Chivas USA Wilmer Cabrera fue el primero en darle la bienvenida a Adrian y a su familia antes del partido del sábado ante los Seattle Sounders FC en el StubHub Center. El Técnico Cabrera le dio a la Familia Grajeda una gira por los vestidores de Chivas USA, así como los centros de rehabilitación y de la utilería. Además de la gira, Grajeda obtuvo obsequios de Chivas USA y fue el VIP del club en el partido.

Después de la gira, Grajeda se unió al equipo para los ejercicios de calentamiento, y justo antes de arrancar el partido, el joven fue el encargado en iniciar el partido al participar en el saque de honor junto al delantero Erick “Cubo” Torres. Échale un vistazo al video:

The morning after facing D.C. United, Chivas USA Goalkeeper Dan Kennedy headed to Memphis, Tennessee to visit the young patients of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as part of MLS W.O.R.K.S.

Ambassador Kennedy’s day started off in the Target House of St. Jude Hospital, where more than 100 families are housed, free of charge, while their children recover in the neighboring hospital. Kennedy then headed to St. Jude where he was given a tour of the hospital before getting down to business. From 2-4pm, Dan met several patients (and soccer fans) that are being treated or recovering from various life-threatening diseases. Although he was there to visit all the patients he could, there was one little guy in focus, Archie. The eight-year old patient from Atlanta was the main visit that the Chivas goalkeeper had planned throughout the day. A soccer-related conversation later, Dan gave an excited Archie an autographed jersey, and for the memory, the photograph (above- photo courtesy of MLS W.O.R.K.S.)

In this Saturday’s match against Real Salt Lake at The Home Depot Center, Dan will welcome Drew (11) and Brooke, two former patients of St. Jude, before the game in what will be Children’s Cancer Awareness Night. Make sure to look out for Dan and his two guests Saturday night!
