GREENVILLE, S.C. (Aug. 11, 2004) — Michelin North America Inc. will donate $100,000 in soccer equipment to communities for every goal scored by Uniroyal spokeswoman Julie Foudy during the summer Olympics.
The tire maker also will donate $1,000 in equipment for every minute she plays. The funds will go to communities where the Uniroyal brand and its dealers support youth soccer leagues.
Michelin ran a similar program last year during the Women's World Cup. The company then donated nearly $300,000 to youth soccer programs. Michelin said it has donated more than $5 million in equipment and funds over the past five years to local programs.
